    Hey guys,
    I have a VM (linux) with 2 HD, one of which is too big and I need to reduce it.
    How can I do it?
    I have vSphere Client version 6.7.0

    Thanks

    Hello ,

    The best way of doing this is by using vCenter Converter Standalone as there is no other way of doing it. Here a good article explaining the step by step: https://www.vmwarearena.com/shrink-vmdk-using-vmware-converter/

    IMPORTANT: make sure to have a backup of the VM to avoid issues when shrinking.
