XP virtual machine increase size

I have just increased my WIN XP virtual machine size to 15GB, but when i run it, it still shows as 4GB.

From what I remember, the fact that the size 'limit' is changed, it won't expand the actual virtual machine 'file' until it's used. It simply allows it's size to expand to that predetermined size setting (15GB)

The error is:

Cannot write to virtual machine
Aborting the file copy operation.

ok 2 things on that error.

1st: Very possible that it's a permission issue on the VM side. Double check that you have the correct permissions setup in that directory.

2nd: could be that you're using older VMware Tools, you may need to update the tools or uninstall, reinstall the vmware tools.

Hi

Managed to solve this problem by using "partition Master" from Best Magic Free Hard Drive Partition Manager & Partition Recovery Software for Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 and Server 2000/2003/2008. Free for home users.
Please take a look at my other post still having problems installing oracle.
