Qaisar shows you how
to expand the EBS volume
for an EC2 instance


I need to add space to the boot drive or other drive of my Amazon EC2 instance (Windows or Linux).

Problems can occur when the boot drive of an instance runs very low on space; expanding the storage space of the boot drive can alleviate these problems.

Note: When completing Step 4 of the section "Extending a Windows File System," be sure to select the actual boot drive (usually (C:)) in the Disk Management utility.
