    I'm running out of disk space on my Parallels share. Can someone point to the link(s) that explain how to increase disk share for parallels?

  2. Hello Ramonekalsaw,

    Could you provide answers to the below mentioned questions. So that we could provide you the best resolution.

    1. Which Version and Build of Parallels Desktop are you using?
    2. Could you inform us how many drives you have in the Virtual machine and their free ( available ) spaces?

    Awaiting your response.

    1. Parallels Desktop 3.0 for Mac; Build 5608
    2. One 32 GB / 712 MB remaining

    Last night I tried this process for expanding my disk --; DISKPART said it extended successfully, but when I tried to reboot I got a failed error, so I had to reinstall my backup.

    But I don't have anywhere near 30 gigs of stuff uploaded ... I checked everywhere I know to look ... program files ... documents ... and I have things lean ... where else would I look for these phantom files that are eating my disk space?

    Thanks for your help.
