You can specify a new size for a Writable Volume using the App Volumes Manager and App Volumes increases the .vmdk file to the new size.
Important: You cannot expand a Writable Volume if your Machine Manager is configured as VHD In-Guest Services. This feature is available only on vCenter Server. See Types of Hypervisor Connections and Machine Manager Configurations and Configure and Register the Machine Manager.
- From the App Volumes Manager console, select .
- Select a Writable Volume from the list and click Expand.
A Confirm Expand window is displayed.
- Enter the new size for the volume and click Expand.
You must enter a size that is at least 1 GB greater than the current size of the Writable Volume.
The Writable Volume file is expanded to the new size the next time the user logs in to the virtual machine.
