How to resize and Existing Virtual Box Image (.vdi)

Start off by creating a fresh new drive of the size you’re after using the VirtualBox user interface. Then, locate both the your old, smaller HD and the new, larger one and run the following command in the command prompt.

After some progress indicators have come and gone your hard disk should have been cloned to the larger one. You now need to use some software to expand your drive partition into the new space. Vista and W7 have this feature built in to Disk Management so you can just opt to extend the partition to fill the remaining space.
