Expanding Disk Volume gives error “There is not enough space available on the disk(s) to complete this operation.”

If you are attempting to extend a disk volume and get the following error:

There is not enough space available on the disk(s) to complete this operation.

Here’s how you fix it!

All you have to do is right click on Disk Management and select Rescan Disks. After you do that, then you will be able to extend the volume!

    Thanks! Tis helped me! Situation for me was that I had a guest virtual server and I increased its hard disk size by 5 GB at the hypervisor level. In the guest the disk was configured as a dynamic disk and showed me the additional 5 GB immediately, without need to rescen disk or refresh view. But I was not able to extend a siimple volume on thisdynamic disk. After I performed rescan manually as suggested I was able to exted the volume.

    I have a file server volume that I needed to allocate some extra space to.

    Disk Management
    There is not enough space available on the disk(s) to complete this operation.

    The above error kept popping up. Your tip saved the day!

    days, yet I by no meeans found any fascinating article like yours.

    bloggers made jus righht content material as you
    probably did, the internet can be a lot more useful than ever
