Can you resize a Windows VM that is already running out of space?

After installing just 2 games on my Gaming VM (my other thread shows I'm experimenting on Moonlight here), I quickly ran out of space.  Is there anything I can do to increase size apart from reinstalling the whole thing?

Assuming Windows,

 

After stopping the VM, click on its name.  You can then resize the vdisk size appropriately.  From within Windows, you will have to go to disk management and expand the partition.

Expand the file system doesn't require external apps?

I assume just right clicking the partition will show that option?

Yes, you might need to reboot the VM after changing the size in the GUI if using Windows 8/10.
