    Windows 10 uses more than 5GB of host space when running on Fusion 7.1.2

      I lose 5GB of hard drive space on my main drive when I start my Windows 10 VM on Fusion 7.1.2. When I drop below 5GB of free space on my host, Fusion stops the VM because there's not enough space left. So I have to have more than 10GB free on my host drive just to run my VM. That's tough to swallow on a MacBook Air with a 256GB SSD when the VM already takes more than 50 GB.

       

      Is this normal and I just never noticed it when running Fusion 6 and Windows 8.1, or is there a way to keep it from taking so much space?
