We don't have specific instructions partly because it's the same as
resizing any Linux virtual machine.

The basic procedure:
Turn off the virtual machine.
In Virtual Box, increase the size of the disk in the VM settings.
Boot something like Gparted Live distro.
Resize the partition with the Gparted tool.
Reboot OSGeo Live with the Gparted disk removed.

This hint might help
