vmdk_00001 keeps growing not sure why
Posted on 2012-03-28
vm_vmdk_0001 continues to grow. I have to keep adding space to the datastore. veeam ran and completed successfully. it usually creates a vmdk_00002 but then removes it. not sure if it also creates the vmdk_0001, just never noticed. any idea why 0001 keeps growing? is it associated with veeam backup or is it a normal file of the vm? it is about 28 GB and growing. I have my vm.vmdk showing as the size of the vm (540 GB).
