There is no right answer here. You should estimate how much space you will need for growth and plan accordingly. For example, you're deploying 2008 R2, which is already 7 years old. So you should factor in enough space for an in-place upgrade to a more modern OS. Also, you'll want to factor in the page file size and whether or not you want full crash dumps. ...

However, the operating system’s cache and the disk’s hardware cache may delay this. You can exit and ...

Ok, for extremely secure data you must not use a virtual OS. Point. The host by nature has access to your memory, that's why. In fact, it's rather the host's one. However, I get you do this because you want to work with the data rather than just store it. I suggest a middleware component to do the encryption/decryption in memory, so writing is done ...

From what you describe, the "disk" is really a virtual disk inside a virtual machine and you increased the disk size by resizing the volume in VMWare? If that's the case and the disk inside the virtual machine doesn't have a partition table (which is fine), than you have to use pvresize directly to increase the PV and don't use fdisk at all. pvresize /...
