I am getting trouble with my virtual machine. My Server is Windows 2008 R2. I wonder what is taking up my hard disk time. Does anybody know how to find this thing out? I checked my Task Manager and it looks like it is only giving some to my CPU but my memory has been into some kind of process which I don’t understand. When I tried my Performance Manager, it showed me some useless graphs that I found not so useful to me. Please help me. Thank you in advance.
Issue with Virtual Machine in Windows 2008
Did you mean to say that your hard disk space is being taken up, because I do not seem to understand when you say that the hard disk time is being taken up?
In case you meant to say that your hard disk space is being taken up, then you will need to know that sometimes there may be hidden files which can take up a lot of room on your hard disk, and the possible big offender for such a problem is often the system restore points that are hidden and therefore you cannot see which files taking space.
You will need to check and see the number of restore points that you have created on your system, and you can do that by going to the Control Panel -> Recovery -> System Restore. You will need to ensure that the box is checked to see all restore points. In case they are many, you can remove them with the disk cleanup utility.
