How big is Parallels? What's taking up all this space?

    My Windows 10 .pvm is 72 GB. Parallels 12's preferences says the VM is 66 GB (including snapshots). So what is the other 6 GB? Does Parallels add that much overhead?

    It's allocated but unused space that Parallels claimed when expanding the VM's HDD. You can reclaim that space from VM options (shrink HDD I think it's called) if you don't think Win needs it.
