Adding extra memory to drives

Hi Guys,

I have a Virtual machine with 4 drives

Drive 1 has 80gb
Drive 2 has 100gb
Drive 3 500gb

Below drive I have the issue with :-(

Drive 4 80gb ( is used for sql data) I have extended the size to 126gb which is the limit is there any way to make it 500gb???

Idealy I would need drive 4 to be 500gb but it only allows to increase to 126gb? Why is this?

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

Help me out here; are these four drives really partitions on one physical hard-drive? I thought at first these are four individual hard-drives - then realized, can't be. I now remember: I have windows XP Mode [virtual machine] on my "C partition", which when active, is about 25GB in size carved out of my C partition which is 493 GB, and that C partition is carved out of a 1TB physical hard-drive. A D[ata] partition uses the other 493GB. Windows housekeeping uses 6GB. I think what you are asking is: how does one change byte-space allocation amongst the existing partitions and/or amongst the virtual "drives" carved out of existing partition[s] located on one physical hard-drive. If I'm assuming incorrectly -- please let me know, thanks!
