Now that I have resolved the issue of getting Win 10 installed, have a question about size. I currently have the size at 60 GB which is no issue for my PC space. As I mentioned earlier, I back everything up would like to know if there is anything wrong with reducing the size of the virtual drive to some minimum size and then copying it to my backup drives and then increasing the size on the PC back up to 60 GB. If this sounds like a reasonable approach, please tell me the minimum size you would recommend.
Honestly, to back up my virtual machines, I just power them down, then zip up the whole VM's folder, and add a date to the filename. That way it's compressed, I know when it was taken, and it's a snap to revert to that version if I ever need to.
Thanks, creating a zip file is a much better solution that I suggested.
