The locally attached storage is formatted into ext3 file-system so technically any disk-partitioning software (like Acronis Disk Director) can resize the volume where your backups are stored. Before resizing the volume you should increase the size of the virtual disk (from vSphere client) where your backups reside. If you need assistance with this task please contact our support team.

Note: the maximum size of locally attached storage (maximum we can format to ext3 at the moment) is 2TB - this limit will be increased in the next version.

Thank you.
