  • For example in order to increase the virtual disk size to 60GB you need to run the following command:

    VBoxManage modifyhd "/home/agha/VirtualBox VMs/agha rehan abbas/agha rehan abbas.vdi" -–resize 60000 (size is in MB)
    

    Then you need to start you Windows machine and go to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk management right click the disk and select Extend volume to add the unallocated space to the current volume.
