This procedure is only needed if your VPS disk did not auto-extend. You can follow the first two steps below to check. If you don’t have a large amount of “Unallocated" space then these procedures are unneeded.

  1. Go to Start Menu > "Computer Management".

  3. Right click on the "C:" drive and choose "Extend Volume".
  4. Click "Next".

  6. Click “Finish”.
