As disk space is getting very low on our virtual server I wanted to expand the the VHD with the appropriate Microsoft wizard. I changed the size from 160 to 200GB, started the server again but still the drive is only 160 in size.

Though checking the size with the Hyper-V when the server is offline states that the disk size is 200GB as configured.

Any idea what could causes this?

Hyper-V, version: 6.1.7601.17514


You also need to extend the volume in the guest using disk management.
