    Virtual Disks can be grown in hosted VMware products using the command vmware-vdiskmanager.exe
    http://pubs.vmware.com/server1/vm/di...rver.7.33.html

    Once the disk is grown, use the Windows command diskpart to extend the partition to use the capacity of the grown disk. Note you can not use diskpart to extend the volume on which the OS lives (ie. the C:\ drive).

    Also, stop using GSX. Use VMware Server instead. GSX was retired quite some time ago. VMware Server is FREE and is the GSX replacement.
