Adding virtual disk file to VMWare Workstation 9.0
We, at some point will fill up all our harddisk space on virtual machines and will need to add
extra virtual disks to support our data. This document does that exactly.
Make sure the virutal machine is shut down.
Click on the Edit virtual machine settings
just under Power on this virtual machine
Click on Add... button
Click on Hard Disk
Check Create a new virutal disk
Check SCSI (Recommended)
Provide the size of the virtual disk you would like to create
Accept the disk file name and click Finish
You will see the new virutal disk added
