Hi All

I have a rather large datastore that hosts a Windows Server 2012. The datastore reports that it is getting close to capacity, however the server has lots of free space in its disk. Unfortunatley I don’t have the space to move the datastore to another datastore. What is the best way to get the datastore to free up the unused space that the server is reporting?
