[Virtualbox] Enlarge a Virtual Disk in VirtualBox(linux) in Windows host

Not enough space in ubuntu virtual box (in Windows host)?

The VBoxManage can solve the problem. The command line will be :

VBoxManage modifyhd “C:\[your_user_path]\VirtualBox VMs\Windows 7\Windows 7.vdi” -- resize 10240

Note. 10240bytes = 10G

And we use GParted to manage these partitions. More easilier.

What to be mentioned is that, if you got your linux-swap blocking, it is better to ready this blog :
