I created a .vdi with fixed disk size and later resized the disk size and attached to my Linux VM. But still my VM is not updated with the resized disk
Initially i got an error during the resize “Resize hard disk operation for this format is not implemented yet!” , maybe because I was trying to resize a fixed size disk
So I first created a clone of the existing virtual hard drive via Command Prompt, as it creates "dynamically allocated virtual hard drive" so that I can resize it without any errors
Then resized the cloned vdi to 40GB:
Then attached my resized vdi to VirtualBox and removed my old vdi:
I see that my disk size is resized here on the GUI.
But now when I run my VM, I still see that my disk size remains the same and not updated.
Any inputs on how I can update my VM with the resized disk will be helpful. Thanks
