    I clicked free up space. Then saw the archive button and since it had no explanation I assumed it would take me to another page explaining its function.

    Instead it started archiving my VM which took 5 hours and there was no way to cancel.

    I think a better pre-emptive warning would be great (This may take hours and you can't cancel the process)

    Seriously needed. It is beyond ridiculous to have an Archiving option with zero warning that it will take hours, cannot be cancelled, and you will not have the use of your VM until it's done.

    It's especially crazy to have this "option" right next to Reclaim Disk Space option as it's easy to inadvertently click on Archive because the latter mentions freeing up disk space.
