How to add Additional Storage to your Azure Deployment

  • Last updated on

Virtual machines (VMs) deployed through Azure Gallery prior to mid February, 2015 do not support Disk Expansion. If you deployed prior to this time period and want to expand the disk, you must re-deploy the VM using the latest VM image available in Azure Gallery.

  1. Log in to the Microsoft Azure Portal.
  2. Click Browse, and then click Virtual Machines:

    During the reboot process, the Barracuda VM provisions the additional storage. This can take some time depending on the region where your virtual machine is located and the amount of provisioned storage.
