The virtual drive size is only limited to the available space on the physical drive its created on. After creating a VHD to need to Attach the VHD in Disk Management. It depends on what they are using the VHD for if they are using it for a Virtual Machine it will depend on the software environment they are using.

I love the way this guy posts, it's like he is texting.  Hysterical.

 

As for helping him - What is your virtual host?  Hyper-V, XenServer, ESXi..... Help us, help you. :)

In VMware ESXi (and possibly other virtualization solutions) you have an option of making your disk a thin disk. This means that the disk will use only as much space as actually needed. For example, a 5 GB disk with 3 GB of space will use only 3 GB of space. Look here for more info: http://vmware-esxi.com/virtual-disk-types/
