I got like 120GB with 200GB maximum size Kali Linux 6.30 in VMware® Workstation 17 Pro but it's taking 351 GB originally now it's 282 GB still huge, I defragmented and compacted its storage that's why the reduced size but it's a problem I need help since I only have now like 64 GB free out of my 1 TB SSD! 3 screenshots provided below! ￼ ￼
This are my current snapshot only one, I deleted the old snapshot which sucks because I cannot go back to old working Kali Linux 6.30, I'm currently using 5.11. Also, the old screenshot I provided is that a good setting? or would it take back all my storage again? also using the VMware keeps the storage growing while I use it even, I'm not downloading anything.
Most old timers around here recommend keeping Autoprotect turned off. It is my opinion that snapshots should be a temporary test vehicle and should not be considered backups. I remove them after testing.
Here are the screenshots never thought it contains so many files! Its feels like it can go forever if you look at the scrollbar too! I need this Kali Linux since it has the needed modules and software's I need for penetration-testing and work. But I currently only using 120 GB with maximum of 200 GB as you can see in the old screenshots.
