    Hello,

    I am running Parallells 7.0 on a MacBook Pro. When our IT person set this up he only allocated 64 gigs for the virtual drive for Windows 7, I now only have 4 gigs left. I need to expand the drive size, but when I try it says that the disk has snapshot, delete the snapshots. But there are no snapshots with this disk and I have never turned that feature on.

    I really need to get this drive size increased, can anyone explain how to get this fixed? I have searched and searched and can not find an answer for Parallells 7.

    I managed to fix this problem by following the instructions here

    Please note on my system in terminal I had to enclose the HDD name in "" eg "Windows Image 2010-01.hdd" it only worked after I tried the quotes. The it merged the orphaned snapshots and I was able to resize the drive.
