VMware Labs have released a great new tool for reclaiming space from a thin provisioned disk/LUN
The disk must be a local physical disk or LUN, and must be used as a RDM within the vm.
Written by Faraz Shaikh and Prasanna Aithal, Guest Reclaim reclaims dead space from NTFS volumes hosted on a thin provisioned SCSI disk.
- Reclaim space from Simple FAT/NTFS volumes
