    Best way to shrink a VMDK file (D Drive) of a VM ?

    TonyJK Expert

      Hi,


      We are running ESXi 6 Update 3.

       

      There is a VM running Windows 2012R2 that consists of 2 HDD (2 Separate VMDK files).

       

      We would like to shrink the D Drive (i.e. The second VMDK file) from 500GB to 100GB.

       

      We would like to know what is the best way to shrink it ?  Would it be a V2V of that VM OR can we just V2V for a particular VMDK file ?

       

      Thanks
