Open VMware Infrastructure (VI) Client and connect to VirtualCenter or the ESX host.
Right-click the virtual machine.
Click Edit Settings.
Select Virtual Disk.
Increase the size of the disk.
Follow these steps so the guest operating system is aware of the change in disk size.
If you use Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 you can expand the volumes from the
Disk Manager in Computer Management. Right-click on volume and click Extend Volume.
If you use another OS you need a 3rd party utility.
Examples of third-party utilities include:
|7tools Partition Manager||http://www.7tools.com/pm/index.htm|
|EASEUS Partition Manager||http://www.partition-tool.com|
|Paragon Partition Manager||http://www.partition-manager.com|
|Ranish Partition Manager||http://www.ranish.com/part|
|System Rescue CD||http://www.sysresccd.org/Main_Page|
|Windows DiskPart utility||If you are using the Windows DiskPart utility, it can only extend (expand) data volumes. If you use the DiskPart utility to extend a system or boot volume, you may get an error. For more information about extending partitions with the DiskPart utility, see the Microsoft Knowledge Base article 325590.|

A workaround that worked for me was adding https://localhost to the trusted sites zone.
