Hi All

            I have a linux rhel 6 running on esxi 5.5 server and total size of the datastore has around 2TB, and i created a linux vm with total size around 1.82TB, at first i had put around 700GB data into the linux network shared drive, and recently i deleted all the 700GB, and try to put another 500GB in to the linux network shared drive, but problem occurred, see below screenshot i have around 1.33TB free space, when i try to copy data into the Y drive, the Capacity from datastore is decreasing instead of the Y drive, what causes such problem ? and i,m using thick provision lazy zeroed when i install the linux vm, any idea how to fix such problem ?
