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.

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