In VMware Workstation, if I make a new machine, I can set disk space to be 100 GB for a (say) Windows 7 machine. It uses 50 GB and the remaining space is NOT allocated (I do not pre-allocate) but within the 100 GB limit, I can use space as I need. I like this approach.
For VMware ESX or for Hyper-V, if I make a new machine, is my space allotment pre-allocated? or not pre-allocated? Is there an option?
Thank you for your help.
