How to Resize a VirtualBox Disk

While working with VirtualBox I made the mistake of underestimate the disk space I would require for the usage of Kubuntu 16.04. Not the operation system itself, but the additional application I actually would need.

That forced me to increase the disk space, a task that resulted in a lot of work that initially expected.

I followed the Derek Molly tutorial "Resize a VirtualBox guest Linux VDI Disk under Windows Host" with some differences due to the problems I faced.
I was unable to not use the recommended gParted, so I ended up trying a similar solution.

I used System Rescue CD, that includes lots of system tools, in an obvious rescue bundle, including gParted. Booting the CD image was not a problem and I got a shell. I typed "startx" to load the window manager and quickly found gParted. From that point on, the tutorial was back on track and I was able to increase the disk space.

System Rescue CD is a great tool and I totally recommend it. I just needed to use gParted for this problem, but it comes with lots of software that can be a life saver.
