Once you have successfully expanded your Virtual Hard Disk, you will need to turn on your VM following the same process previously used to turn off your VM and log into the server.

Open your Server Manager>Select Local Server>Click Tools and Select Computer Management.

Open “Disk Manager” on your Virtual Machine. You will see your current C: Drive Partition and along with an Unallocated Partition with the amount of hard disk space that you created earlier.

Right-click on the volume you want to extend (in this case C:\ Partition) and select “Extend Volume”. This will open up the Wizard screen for your extended volume and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the process.

Congratulations! You have just expanded the disk size successfully.
