How can I increase my hard drive space for a kali 1.0.6 linux 32-bit virtual machine running on a mac using vmWare Fusion. I was in the process of installing several android sdk's and realized my allocated memory was't going to be sufficient and need to add about 10 gb to the virtual disk.

Below is the size / file name -> of the files in my virtual machine folder for Kali

  • Install GParted to a USB and boot the VM into the USB and that should allow you to increase HD space – ryekayo Mar 27 '15 at 19:13

    Thanks ryekayo, this is exactly what I needed to do. I found this site pretty useful in the walkthrough of this process you start to explain, beerpla.net/2007/08/10/… . – lexodistro Mar 27 '15 at 19:37

To resize your virtual HD, I recommended installing GParted to a USB stick and booting the USB to your virtual machine. GParted will allow you to resize the Harddrive as you cannot mount into it and then expect to resize it. The virtual HD will need to be unmounted.
