Note to self : Extend your HyperV System partition

I recently ran out of space in my SharePoint 2013 VM c:\ drive (system partition); the Disk Management Utility didn’t allow me to extend the system partition; so here is how I fixed it


1.Shut down the VM and delete All snapshots  (and wait for the system to merge everything)


2.Edit your Disk (browse to the vhd file)


3.Select “Expand


4.specify the new file size :


5. Start your VM, select computer Management –Disk Management


6. Right click on the C: drive
