Hi. Each time, I shut down my VM, running windows xp, the disk image size is increased by 1-2 GB, without installing new software on the VM OS or creating much data. I have setup the system so data is not saved in the VM but through the shared folders to an external disk. It started out as s 5GB image and it is now 16GB and it just grows and grows in size. I don't know if that is the reason but it also gets more and more slow. If I compact the image it only removes 6MB of disk, so thats nothing. what can I do about this?
