The resizer by itself makes a *new copy* of the old VHD disk leaving
it totally unharmed. It makes a new bigger disk, then copies all of
the data over. The end result is a disk with the old data in a
partition the same size as before and then an empty unpartitioned
space on top of that. You need to expand the existing partition into
the empty space to utilize it. Newer Windows versions can do that but
for older ones you need 3rd party tools...
