Expand disk space in VMware ESXI VM


Hi,

I've a debian distro running in a VM in VMware ESXI 4.0. Initially the OS was installed in a partition with 10GB, but now i've moved to a partition with 50GB. How can I expand the disk space to use the 50GB?

Regards.

You should be able to use a partition manager like gparted within the VM to take advantage of the extra space. Make sure you have backups!
