Disk management console view is not up-to-date
I have stumbled on a problem that is reported in many forms in different forums, but it is always blamed to something else or not solved.

Problem: Not possible to extend a volume, because in the final step the Extend Volume Wizard reports (after clicking Finish):

The operation failed to complete because the Disk Management console view is not up-to-date. Refresh the view by using the refresh task. If the problem persists close the Disk Management console, then restart Disk Management or restart the computer.

Non of these suggested solutions remove this error.

Here is what I did:
1) installed Vista x64 on a 500 GB disk.
2) for reasons not important here, I decided to move to a 1000GB disk, by backing up the system, and restoring it on the 1000 GB disk. This worked sofar, but Vista created only a 500 GB partition, with an empty second partition.
3) I now try to extend the first partition to 1000 GB. I do this by right clicking the boot partition and select Extend partition. On the wizard I keep next, then Finish. Then this message above appears.

Found a solution
Wow, found a solution here: How to Extend a Disk Partition in Windows Vista and Server 2008

The solution was to use the command line interface instead of the graphical user interface:

1) Start command line interface (Right click Run as Administrator)
2) enter "Diskpart"
3) List Disk
4) Select Disk x (in my case 0)
5) List partition
6) Select partition x ( in my case 1)
7) extend

Done!

Re: Disk management console view is not up-to-date
Hi, vankampenp.

Thanks for the tip. I've seen that error message ("Disk Management console
view is not up-to-date"). I got it fixed, somehow, but don't remember how.
Another poster was asking about it recently and I couldn't recall what to
advise.
