Often we are being conservative in deciding the virtual disk space when creating VirtualBox virtual machine in order not to use a lot of the host's actual disk space, or just because we think the size we decided would be plenty enough.

But then, after some while we run out of space and look for a way to expand it. Unfortunately there is no easy way to do that.

In this case, you can create a new virtual disk, attach it to the virtual machine (add, not replace the main one) and then the start it. Inside the client OS we will see both drives and there is your additional space.

If you don't like having two disks, then you can do partition copy from the original disk to the new disk, power off the virtual machine and detach the original disk.
