How do I increase the maximum size of a virtual disk?

    When I created my virtual disk drive under Virtual PC 2007, I specified
    a maximum size of 16,384 MB. That is no longer large enough. When I try
    to run a certain program update, I run out of disk space.

    The Virtual PC Wizard only gives me the options to convert it to a
    fixed-size virtual hard disk or compact it (which I have just done). I
    want to keep it as a dynamically expanding virtual hard disk, but with a
    larger maximum size. How can I do that? Thanks!

    Seems an unreliable solution, though, so make sure you save a copy of
    your old .vhd file.
