Disks showing Healthy (At Risk) after expansion

Because of 2tb limit (Vsphere 6.0) I shut down server this morning and expanded data disk from 1.85 to 2.5 TB. At the moment I don't want to allocate the space

All appears ok server up disks accessible etc. but Disk Management (Server 2012 R2 VM) shows the disks as Healthy (At Risk). The extra 660gb is showing correctly as unallocated

Looked at various articles and tried option Reactivate disk which is showing under the Dynamic disk - no change

Any advise please?

Check if the disk is reporting any errors Checking and Repairing Virtual Disks​. For the datastore in which the disk in question is residing, do you see any read/write failures in the vmkernel.log or any other events for that matter? If the above does not help, create a new disk and copy the data or perform a v2v via File level cloning from within the guest operating system.

Thanks Supreet. Could you advice further on doing a file level clone to a new disk. I think easiest is to create a new disk and copy data over
