Expanding Virtual Hard Drive on Fusion

I've expanded my Fusion on MACOS Monterey virtual hard drive on my Windows 10 VM to 1 TB and the size shows correctly in Settings but my C Drive is still showing 200GB with only 10 GB remaining.  I must be doing something wrong.  Please post a suggestion.

Hi,

You also need to extend the disk partition of your disk (for example the C:\ drive) within the Windows guest OS.

See for example:

and

for more info.
