I was told by the VMware guru here that you can do a Thin to Thin conversion on your VM's to get rid of the white space on the VMDK.
I see all over the place how to do thick to thin but not what he is talking about. Does anyone know about this?
We have 5 VM's, each is running close to 40 gigs but there is only about 10 gigs of space actually used on them after we install all of the software we need.
He told me to go look up the command line formula for doing this and I can't find it.

Thanks for any help.
