Resize virtual disk in Windows VMware for system
At the beginning of installing Windows 7 virtual OS, there is large space on the
system drive. However, a few years later, with the increasing files and programs,
some of us may receive the low disk space warning. Then, we may want to use the
built-in Disk Management to help us enlarge the system volume. Indeed, we can get
some free space from other volume with it, but the option of "Extend Volume"
cannot enlarge the system partition when the free space is not right behind it.
Thus, the only way to solve the problem is to backup all data and format the hard
drive. After that, we must reinstall the operating system to reallocate it. How
complicated the procedure is! To some extent, it is a burden because it costs a lot
of time. Therefore, we may try our best to find a magic tool to help us resize
virtual disk in Windows 7.
