# Mac – Is it possible to split VirtualBox Hard Drive to multiple volumes

virtual machinevirtualboxvirtualizationvmware-player

VirtualBox hard drive usually has one or a few files when you create a drive. I think it is good because you manage only a few files. However, I have out of space of my drive. Is it possible to span over other volume like in VM player?

#### Best Answer

Yes it is possible, though you need to use the VMDK disk format.

VBoxManage clonehd disk.vdi disk.vmdk --format VMDK --variant Split2G


This will create disk.vmdk (text file) along with a number of disk-sXXX.vmdk (data files). You should point your virtual machine to use the disk.vmdk file.
