More space being used on c: drive of vm then actually shown in vSphere ESX 4,0(Linux)

view full story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I am creating 6 vm's using Linux based vSphere ESX 4.0, 3 xp machines and 3 server 2008 machines. On one of the server 2008 machines, the C: drive shows 14.9 GB total size with 1.06 GB free. But, in the vSphere client I have 34.00 GB provisioned with over 27 GB of that being used for that vm. Is there anyone that is familiar with this program and issue, and if so, can you tell me how to better utilize space? (HowTos)
