Q.  Virtual Box: how to grow a virtual disk?

A.  Surprisingly, this isn't available in the disk settings for the VM.

Instead from the main menu 

Files > Virtual Media Manager
From there its pretty obvious what to do. Then you need to get into the guest OS to change the partition tables. On Linux, use gparted. On Ubuntu, use baobab to graphically see disk use (but it doesn't resize). Or command line, df -h
