I have a SCVMM host that is at 5% disk space, it has 2 VMs on it, and I tried removing items from the VMs, but it still says 5% disk space left.

How can I sort this out, being new to SCVMM.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hello there,

VHDs can only grow unless you compress them. After you removed data from VMs you shoud run "Optimize-VHD" cmdlet on that VHD so it can reduce size.
