sudo mount /dev/loop4 /media/extra
sudo rsync -avx --exclude '/sys/*' --exclude '/proc/*' / /media/extra
Boot into windows and rename extra.virtual.disk to system.virtual.disk.
To resize home.virtual.disk the procedure is similar to the above but you have to use: sudo rsync -avx /home/ /media/extra
This method is a problem for me since I have 3.68GB left on the drive and the installation itself is 3.9gb....
UNLESS you mean that you should create extra.virtual.disk of the desired size to ADD to your existing virtual disk, then I could just create a 3gig file and add it to the existing 3.9gb file to create a file of 6.9 gb. That would work.
I tried the previous method of using tfile to resize the file, which didn't work. Strangely though if you resize the file to 700 megabytes then it will allow you to resize it back up to 7000mb... very strange.
