  • Hi,

    Thank you for posting here!

    You can easily increase the size of existing disks. For example, if you wish to increase the size of a 30 GB disk to 128GB or to 1 TB. Or, if you wish to convert your P20 disk to a P30 disk because you need more capacity or more IOPS and throughput. You can expand the disk using "Update-AzureDisk" PowerShell commandlet with "-ResizedSizeInGB" property. For performing this action, disk needs to be detached from the VM or the VM needs to be stopped.
