    Hello,

    I was wondering if anyone knows how to resize a VMWare Disk size ?
    I can do it in VMWare, but windows doesn't see the expanded space (I know I could make a second partition, but I'd prefer to have 1 partition if I can.)

    Here's the setup.

    VMWare Fusion 3.0.2 (though if I could do it in Fusion 2.0 that would be nice)
    Windows XP SP3
    Current Partition size: 10GB
    Desired size: 15GB
    Format: NTFS
    Disk Type: Basic. (not Dynamic)


    Thanks in advance, and all the best!
    ~Ark

    You still need to repartition the Windows volume that the vdmk files contains. Luckily there's an open source program that can do it for free :)
