I setup a VMWare with guest machine running in Ubundu, the capacity of hard disk was set to 40G. It is too small for me now, I wanted to extend to 100G.
Step 1: Go to VM–>setting, click the hard disk option, then select ‘utilities’, and click on ‘Extend’, put the capacity to 100G.
Step 2: In Ubundu, open up terminal, and install partition tool—gparted.
$sudo apt-get install gparted
Step 3: open up gparted:
then you can see the extended partition:
With gparted, it is very easy to format the extended partition, then apply the change.
Step 4: mount the extended partition to a point:
create a fold:
$sudo mkdir share
mount extended partition to share fold:
$sudo mount /dev/sda3 /home/chenlocus/share
Step 5: setup automatic mount on Ubundu startup:
open up /etc/fstab with gedit:
$sudo gedit /etc/fstab
and put this(customize to your own conditions):
/dev/sda3 /home/chenlocus/share auto defaults 0 1
Then even if you restart up your VM, the extended partition will still be mounted to the share fold.
