I created disk image with WinXP which is only 1.5Gb size. Now I want to install smth big in that disk image but cannot do it because image is too small.
Looking for a tool to resize disk image to new geometry and keep all the data inside (smth similar to that disk copy tools to).
I think implementation might be stright forward - enlarge and fill with zeroes all new unused space.

    How about "bxresize.exe", as you mentioned in the artifact title?

    The new bximage utility also has the capability to increase the size of a disk image. The formats (modes) flat, sparse, growing and vpc are currently supported (still to do: vmware 3/4).
