Insufficient disk space on data store
Posted on 2013-01-31
I am setting up a new virtual machine. I have configured a data store 300 GB in size. When I set up the virtual machine, go to power up I get a message that says insufficient disk space on data store. If I delete and remove from disk, the machine, the data store says it has 298 GB of free space. However when I reconfigured the machine, and go to power it on, I get a message that says insufficient disk space on data store. I have deleted everything multiple times and started from scratch to ensure that my settings are correct. I have set up virtual machines numerous times, similar using Windows 2003, but have never gotten this error message so persistently. How do I get around this?
