Hi so I've had VMware server 2.0 running on a xp 64bit host system. The virtual os is sbs2k3 R2 and I've noticed that there are a bunch of files taking up space that don't match my configuration I'd like some help figuring out which files belong to the virtual server and how I can clean up the remaining.
In the summary of the VM I get the following info as you can see when comparing this info with the info in the actual directory the sizes don't match at all and there are server huge extra files. I matched up the filename clicking on the virtual disk and clicking edit.
The harddisks are the following order:
Hard Disk 1 SCSI 0:0: 60GB C:\ actual name: SBSWIN2K3R2 VM_1.vmdk
Hard Disk 2 SCSI 0:1: 160GB SBS2K3R2- Virtual Machine_3-000002.vmdk
Hard Disk 3 SCSI 0:2: 84GB SBS2K3R2- Virtual Machine_2-000002.vmdk
Hard Disk 4 SCSI 0:3: 40GB drive-000002.vmdk
Hard Disk 5 SCSI 0:4: 10GB SBS2K3R2- Virtual Machine_4-000002.vmdk
Hard Disk 6 SCSI 0:5: 50GB SBSWIN2K3R2 VM-000001.vmdk
The virtual machine name is SBSWIN2K3R2 VM
I thought some of the extra very large files were snapshots but when I go into snapshots it says there are none. Just looking to free up a bunch of space thanks for your help. I've done some digging around and haven't found anyone with a similar problem. I also tried to see which files are locked when the VM is on figuring if they aren't locked I could delete them safely but that doesn't work all the files are locked even those with a modify date of 2 years ago? I've attached a view of the directory.
