I have a Virtual machine and i am using VMWare Workstation to run it. The vmdk file, which is the virtual hard drive, is in excess of 40GB. When i start the virtual Machine i can see that i have only 2 Partions. One is a 6GB with Windows XP and the required software installed and the second partition is 3.91GB. This makes just less than 1GB of space in use while the other 30GB is not being used.
I am trying to find a way to shrink this VM HDD file down. I have tried to use the VM tools and another third party tool called Virtual Disk Factory. It might be the case that I am not doing it right.
I would be very much grateful if I can have some help on this matter,
