My disk space is low on my virtual machine

Hey there,

My question requires some expertise in Virtual Machine administration and navigation. I am using a Windows XP machine in a virtual machine environment as the robot we are running can only run faster using it. The robot at I am mentioning here is an Excel file with macros in it that runs automatically when the items or cells are entered with data. Together with the robot, we are using Microsoft Outlook to send the data.

 We are only given 250 MB user disk space since all our stuffs will be saved in a shared drive. I was just wondering. I made sure that all of my files are already deleted, as well as in recycle bin. But, it still says that my memory is low. I also performed disk clean up, but it is just the same issue. How do I find out if there are still files under my profile? Thanks.

In Virtual Machine you have to firstly identify the total space you want to use for any or your installed window. When we create new OS it asks us to enter the disk space and after that it is reserved on the disk. If you have selected 250 MB it means that the whole window will come in 250 MB disk space. As to windows it takes approximately 2 to 3 GB space so this will be same in Virtual Machine same apply to service. Either creates a copy of your window Application. The 250 MB are used by the VM itself not by the window you have to create your on disk space for the purpose of storing files in VM. 

So you have to delete the window you created in VM and then implement it again with 2 to 3 GB space.

Hi Helen Trench, mainly this problem occurs when due to mismanagement and under expectation we choose our disk space while virtual machine is being constructed with another operating system. First try to resize your drive using some partition magic utilities to allocate some more space to the virtual drive. Secondly you can dynamically allocated expansion to your virtual drive by associating “.vhd” but on other hand it will expand automatically and may grasp your full disk space without prior notification. In this case the dynamic expansion is allocated from guest user in operating system. Better way to resolve this issue is you should manually delete unnecessary folders and file from virtual machine. Hope this solution will help you out.
