    Thinning virtual machine with Ubuntu 64 bit

      Hi there,


      according to Ubuntus "Disk Usage Analyzer" (baobab) 20,7GB of 76GB are in use at the moment (see attachments) but the VMware directory somehow is around 79 GB.

      I already tried the disk utilities "Defragment" and "Compact" but sadly with no success.


      Any ideas how to shrink the used disk space of the VM?



      VMware Workstation 12 Player V12.1.0 buid-3272444

      Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 64-bit with 76 GB disk space


      Thanks in advance!
