    The windows.pvm file stored in documents is pretty big. I want to get more space on my mac, is it possible to compress this file, and in what format?, if it is possible of course..
    If it isn't possible can i remove that .pvm file to my extern harddisk and run parallels desktop from there? I don't run, or need, windows that often, so windows on demand is maybe better and it saves space on my mac for sure! Did i already wrote the solution, maybe?...

    Hi @eddy2, yes! It is possible to move the virtual machine to an external storage. Can you please check out this article for more information on transfer of a virtual machine to an external drive
