How to increase the size of Virtual Box Hardisk

08/09/2016 1066 views
I have a windows server 2012 R2 OS, installed in Virtual Box.
The size limit of the hardisk is only 25 gb.

Is there anyway to increase the size of it.
If I add another hard disk partition using Plus option the image, I can add a new logical disk only but not able to add the increased size to the same partition in the OS.

Can anyone suggest me on this.
