How to increase the hard disk size of the virtual machine

Open a terminal and navigate to the folder with the VirtualBox disk image, then use the following command:
VBoxManage modifyhd YOUR_HARD_DISK.vdi --resize SIZE_IN_MB 
replacing YOUR_HARD_DISK and SIZE_IN_MB with your image name and desired size.

My guest OS is Ubuntu. To manage it's partitions I used GParted Live CD.
