I have a Server 2012R2 VM running on a VSphere ESXi 5.0.0 (1489271) Host. It has been updated and patched to allow support for 2012R2.
Within my VM I have several disks (Thick Provisioned). However, upon deleting data on these disks, Explorer does not see the free space - in fact, after deleting about 120GB of data, one disk still has only 2GB free.
I'm stumped. Disk Management also reflects the same data as Windows Explorer with respect to the free space - is this a VMWare thing, or a Windows thing? Any ideas?
Even WinDirStat is showing incorrect stats. See images in WinDirStat and Explorer.
