- Create 2nd larger size .vdi hard drive image.
- Set as slave in specified Virtualbox.
- Download and mount ISO for HDClone free.
- Make sure boot order is set to Cd-Rom before hard drive. Boot Virtualbox.
- Follow HDClone prompts to copy old hard drive to new hard drive.
- Auto increase size of partition when asked.
- When done, set new hard drive image as master in Virtualbox.
- Format, and set as slave or delete 1st hard drive image.
Worked just like that for me the first time. This was the only way I tried and seemed very easy and simple versus other ways mentioned above. Paid versions of HDClone have more options but the Free Version works for moving to a larger hard disk drive with automatic upsizing.
