A Backup Repository on a Virtual Appliance (VA) is located in a logical volume (that can spread across multiple physical volumes). To extend the Backup Repository size on the VA, you need to add a new disk to the VA and then use the VA console to extend the Backup Repository to the new disk. 

The Backup Repository size on the VA cannot be increased by extending existing VA disks.
