You may increasing the size of the ES virtual data disk.
If you have ES 2.3 or newer all you have to do is to increase the second hard drive in VMware. Se VMWare KB Article http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1004047 for hove this is done on your platform. Then reboot, and ES will detect and handle the rest automatically.If you don't see two disks please contact support for instructions.
