You can adjust the amount of storage allocated to a virtual machine at any time. You do not have to power off the virtual machine to adjust the storage.

See Migrate a Virtual Machine Disk between Storage Tiers for information about adjusting the type of storage.

Note

You cannot change both the storage tier and the storage amount at the same time. Change one setting, save your changes, then change the other.
