Not sure I understand your remark, the snapshot size displays what is in the delta file, not including the size of the VMDK.
In other words you would only see the changes made to the VMDK after the snapshot is taken.
Perhaps you could show us an example screenshot of what you mean?
Exactly, which used to be the size of the *-delta.vmdk file. But now it clearly is not for us. Not exactly certain when this changed for us, but it was sometime after Oct 25th of this year.

From where did you obtain that VMDK size?
From the datastore browser in the Web Client?
So that information is from a 'du' command executed from a linux host with the datastore mounted NFS.
VMware have confirmed this should be resolved in 6.5 U2.
So it's not a PowerCLI "feature" but a vSphere one?
I know this is an older post but Warnox do you have an documentation for this being fixed in U2? I checked the release notes and do not see that listed.
I know I too am reviving an older post (and really just saying me too), but we are just now experiencing the problem too. PowerCLI has reported correctly for many years. We are running VMware ESXi, 6.5.0, 13004031 . Just tried to open a support call with VMware and they basically said, yes it's an issue but wouldn't support PowerCLI. Warnox did you have proof this was addressed? If so can you share some more info.
Did anyone else find a resolution? We've built several processes around this information and it is now unreliable at best.
