VBoxManage cannot resize fixed size disks

Reported by: Csq Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: virtual disk
Version: VirtualBox 4.2.6 Keywords: vdi fixed resize
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: all


It shows an error instead:

VBoxManage.exe: error: Resize hard disk operation for this format is not implemented yet!

Another (easier and safer) solution would be to add a --resize option to the clonehd command of VBoxManage

Just found on Google that clonehd has an --existing flag and it easily copies the contents even to a bigger fixed size vdi image. This does exactly the same I suggested, so the ticket was unnecessary.

Should make it into the FAQ though.

VBoxManage clonehd small.vdi large.vdi --existing
