Windows showing wrong drive size after resizing the VPS/image or cloning howto fix

1, Enter the command prompt

Start -> cmd

2. Start diskpart

diskpart

3. Find the drive that has the wrong size

list volume

4. Select the volume (in this example we use volume 2)

select volume 2

5. Extend the volume

extend filesystem

*Note the "extend filesystem" and not just extend, this is because our space is allocated and just not correctly reported to the NTFS system so it is necessary or you will ge the failure below"

result:

Diskpart successfully extended the volume

failure:

Virtual Disk Service error:

The size of the extent is less than the minimum

*I don't know why the above error happens,normally it is if the partition cannot extend that far because the next partition or volume is next but this is not the case on this system.
