Re: Increasing Virtual Box disk size

You have to grow the partition and the filesystem in it. You don't mention the filesystem type (fat....? ext...? reiserfs? ntfs? etc).
If the partition has been expanded, you can select the filesystem and run the "check" command, to make it including the entire partition. This is valid for supported filesystems.
Normally, the partition has to be unmounted.
