resize virtualbox disk

Resize the virtual disk (VirtualBox version 4.0+ only)

If you are using VirtualBox version 4.0 or later, you can resize the logical capacity of a virtual disk using the VBoxManage modifyhd --resize command.

On the host system, run the following command:

cd /path/to/vbox/disks

VBoxManage modifyhd OldDisk.vdi –-resize 30000

whereOldDisk.vdiis the filename of the virtual disk VDI file you want enlarge and30000is the new maximum size (in megabytes) of the virtual disk.

If your host OS is Windows, then the commands you need to enter at the Command Prompt will look more like the following.

cd “C:\Documents and Settings\myusername\.VirtualBox\HardDisks”

“C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VBoxManage.exe” modifyhd OldDisk.vdi –resize 30000
