Expand Virtual Disk - VMware

Power off your VM and navigate to the settings of your VM host. Two hard drives will be configured. The first disk is named OS.vhd and should not be altered unless instructed to by Tenable Support. The second drive, named Data.vhd, is the disk to choose for expansion.

Once you increase the size of the virtual drive, it cannot be reduced later. Additionally, do not expand it to a size larger than your physical storage can accommodate.

Click on the Edit button for the properties of the disk. Select Expand from the Choose Action option, and select Next to display the screen to select the new size. Enter the new size value and click Finish to close the window and expand the drive to the new size.
