Don't understand the numbers you're quoting. Can you show the configuration of the VM and the free space of the datastore where it is stored?

Hi!

Snapshot is a delta disk where changes are stored.

Initial delta disk size is 16Mb. Delta disk grows when you change data or write new data.

C drive is full with 50 GB and D drive is full with 50 GB, if we take snapshot of the VM, How much GB will be snapshot take? shall it create snapshot of 200GB of the VM's or only the Snapshot will be created data has been occupied by VM?

Could you please also tell me in how much percentage space data it will consume based on above VM's configuration?

Please, see my previous answer.

VM's snapshot (delta disk) initial size is 16Mb. It grows when you make any changes with data inside VM.

You can read more info about snapshots here VMware Knowledge Base
