same problems to reduce disk size Hi, hope someone may help me with this: Had the same problem as the original poster, I created a virtual disk with too much hard drive. My macbook air has 120 gb and my VM has 43, of which I may never use more than 20 gb. In other words, I need to recover at least 25 gb into my Mac. I have already followed all the steps running Paralles Image Tools first on the Mac side, and then running Parallels Compressor with the VM turned on. Also deleted the .xml file, merged the snapshots (although I didnÂ´t have them activated and that option in Par. Image Tools was grayed out) and followed the whole procedure without a single problem nor error message. Then, when I check the free space on my mac, I find the it has DECREASED in approx. 2 GB each time IÂ´ve done the procedure (I have tried it 3 times) and my PC hard drive remains the same. So my available space on the mac side hasnÂ´t increased at all and has even decreased!! I have tha latest build of Parallels 4.0 (3844) and I really donÂ´t understand what might I be doing wrong. Thanks in advance!!!
