VMware Hints

Enlarging VMware Virtual Disks

Shutdown your virtual machine first. Make a backup copy of your virtual disk file before proceeding.

Use the command line tool located in the same directory as vmware.exe using the fully quoted path.

Example: change virtual disk size of virtual machine "email" to 8 GB

C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Workstation\vmware-vdiskmanager.exe" -x 8GB email.vmdk
