I'm running Windows 7 with XP as a virtual machine. I've installed Oracle 8i within XP which seems to be running just fine for the past few months. However, the other day I noticed I only have 4.3 GB left on my C:\ partition (total is 66.7GB) and I seem to be losing almost a GB per day!.
The Oracle DB is for development only so it is not growing anywhere near the rate that's being added to C drive. My other data is on the D:\ partition about the same size as C. Each night I usually hibernate the XP mode although I always shut it down for the weekend.
I've already lost about 500MB this morning and as best as I can tell the the file "Windows XP Mode.vhd" (Virtual Machine Hard Drive Image) is what's growing. This may have been happening from the get go back in May when Windows 7 was installed and it's only now that I noticed the problem.
Has anyone had this experience with the XP mode in Windows 7?
