wrong disk size (Win Explorer) after volume extend


after extending a volume with Windows Disk Management the wrong disk size is displayed in Windows Explorer.

Do fix this issue open a command prompt and execute the following commands:

1. diskpart
2. list volume
3. select volume X (for X use the volume with problems)
4. extend filesystem


After these commands the correct disk size should be displayed in Windows Explorer (otherwise use chkdsk and eventually gparted to isolate the problem)
