Note: do not decrease the size without decreasing the file system first. Otherwise the file system will be damaged.

Wiki Markup

Increasing the size of the XenServer virtual disk size does not change the filesystem on that disk. So the new disk space is not yet visible to the user. To use the new disk space, the partition table must be modified (which makes the new device size known to the file system) and the file system must be extended (to use the extra space).
