VMware vSphere – cannot increase VM disk size, greyed out

You turn off your virtual machine, right-click it and pick “Edit settings”. You want add few GBs to your current disk, but it is greyed out and you cant change it.

If you are in this scenario, the solution is probably very easy. Make sure you dont use snapshots, delete them. After that it should be possible to increase disk size as you are used to.
