    Hi all,
    I have 2 VMs installed, one for WORK and another for HOME.
    Size of PVMs
    - WORK = 49gb
    - HOME = 192gb
    All my applications like Office etc. are stored on the WORK VM.
    The HOME VM has no chunky apps or big files. The Recycle bin is empty and Ive also run free empty space to check whether anything is lurking.
    I am absolutely baffled why the HOME VM is so large. Windows itself is telling me it's used 59GB and 199 GB free of an overall disk size of 255gb.
    I did used to keep 2 rolling Snapshots but have deleted all snapshots to find whether that's causing the problem.
    So, does anybody have any ideas why the PVM is using 192gb while windows itself thinks its only used 59gb ?
