Windows did an automatic update and the harddrive space on the windows part of vbox is almost used up. Is there a way to make vbox bigger on harddrive? I have the xp set to 7mbs and I would like to enlarge it to 20mbs. Is this possible without messing anything up?

1. Create new VM-Harddisk
2. Attach this disk as second disk to VM
3. Boot VM with clonezilla liveCD
4. Clone old VDI to new VDI (see 1+2)
5. Boot VM with gparted liveCD
6. Resize new VDI
7. Swap VM-Harddisk (New VDI -> Old VDI)
