vSphere 5.5 - Datastore shows 20GB free. Disk in Windows has 800GB free?
Posted on 2016-09-20
I have a datastore that's showing it has 20GB free space out of 1,000 GB provisioned space.
However, only thing on this datastore is a virtual disk connected to a VM.
The disk in a Windows server VM is just a disk that's the 1T disk, and it has 800GB free.
Why would the Windows free space show 800GB, but the datastore in vSphere is 20GB free?
Anyway I can free up the space to reflect?
I'm finding the datastore has insufficient space for a backup.
It is Thick Provision Lazy Zeroed.
