Resizing an existing users RDS user profile disk

When you set limits on users RDS Profile disks you may need to extend it. Its not too obvious how so here’s some instructions:

Ensure the user is logged off.

Logon to a server with Hyper-v role open powershell as admin and map a network drive to the RDS Server.
Net use u: \\RDSServer\UserData

Resize the drive:
Resize-VHD -Path u:\UVHD-S-1-5-21-2543054372-2865519341-1417661733-5380.vhdx -SizeBytes 15GB

Remove the drive:
Net use U: /delete

Back on the RDS Server Mount the VHD.

* Note if you havent done it before you will get an access denied error. Unless you want to view the content you can ignore it – to view the content you need to take ownership and then separately add yourself to security.

Open disk management and you will be able to extend the volume:

Don’t forget to eject the drive once you are done!

Hope it helps!
