Detailed Description

The Resize-VirtualDisk cmdlet resizes an existing virtual disk to be larger or smaller.

Note: The ability to expand or shrink is vendor specific.

Note: If there is a partition on the virtual disk, then the partition must also be resized in order for the client to have additional space on the disk surfaced to Windows.

Parameters

-AsJob <SwitchParameter>

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

-ThrottleLimit <Int32>

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet.
