    You can increase the size in GUI.

    1. Click Storage and select any type of storage (Exchange / VMware/Shared Folder/Generic iSCSI/Hyper-V).
    2. Then select the storage you want to increase the size and click details button.
    3. Follow these methods for different type of storages:

    Microsoft Exchange - Go to the details of Exchange storage, select the Mailbox Database click details >> you will two LUNs (one for mailbox and another for log), select the one you want and click details >>> Click on Virtual Disk Capacity tab and you have an option to change size.

    Shared Folder - Go to the details of shared folder storage and click on 'Shared Folder Capacity'. In this tab you have an option to increase the size in 'size' field.
