Directory (folder) has no size. I think you are talking about increase partition size.

If you have lvm then you can incress partitin size or you can use gpartd.

You could in effect add an additional hdd subsystem that you create a new filesystem on that could contain the original contents of the folder then mount same to the original mount point. This is done all the time by users who want to implement in this fashion. Type of filesystem is dependent on your design criteria.

Most of my partition schemes are done in this manner since the systems are test benches and are changing configurations all the time.
