VMWare: Shrink VMDK size of Thick Provisioned Virtual Disk
Posted on 2013-12-11
I have a Windows 2008R2 500GB VMWare virtual disk I'd like to shrink. After I reconfigure the VM with the reduced virtual disk size, I do a Shrink Volume in Windows, but how do i get the actual VMDK size to decrease on VMFS? Keep in mind this is for a thick provisioned virtual disk.
