How can I expand an existing EBS volume on my Amazon EC2 Windows instance?

You can use Elastic Volumes to modify the size, performance, and volume type of your existing Amazon EBS volumes. Before you modify an EBS volume, it's a best practice to create an Amazon EBS snapshot of the volume.
Note: If you receive errors when running AWS CLI commands, make sure that you’re using the most recent version of the AWS CLI.
If you modify the size of an EBS volume, be sure to extend the Windows file system after resizing the volume.
