    All of a sudden an alert box appeared that said "You are running out of free disk space... Clear some space or Stop the VM." Or something like that. First of all, if I click Continue to go back and try to free space, the message keeps coming back. So I am forced to stop the VM. I ran Parallels Image Tool to expand the size of the disk, and add the extra space to the volume. It seemed to work, but the same low disk space error keeps popping up when I try to run Parallels.

    HELP! I can't start my VM now. I even ran Parallels Explorer to try to free some space but that's not working either.

    Even after mounting the windows drives and manually deleting files, the VM still won't start up. In fact, the more files I delete, the LESS space the error panel says I have left. Something is very wrong. Is there a way I can reset Parallels or repair the drive? I think Parallels is reporting low space even though there's ample space free.
