Increasing the disk size of your virtual machine
CloudShare supports editing your virtual machine hardware and increasing the disk, RAM or number of CPUs. To access this functionality, bring up your environment and navigate to the ‘Edit hardware’ page:
Once you are in the edit hardware page, you can edit the available resources. Click on the Disk edit icon, then use the slider to reallocate more drive space. Use this cautiously and do this in small increments when you need the space as you can not shrink the volume once the changes are saved:
Then, click ‘Save changes’ and your environment will begin updating.
Remember: if you edit your disk size, you will have to partition your hard drive accordingly.
For windows: access the ‘Disk Management’ utility, right-click on the main partition and select ‘Extend volume…’
Windows Server 2012 has relocated the option for Computer Management:
Select the size you wish to allocate and click ‘Next’:
Finish the process and you will see the extra space assigned to your main partition.
Finally, take a snapshot to ensure your new settings are saved.
