    New VM created as thin but occupying full disk space in datastore

    drakeramoride Novice

      Hello everybody and thanks for trying to help me.


      I have created a new Windows 10 64b as a VM under a ESXi 6.7. I assigned 1 Tb disk with thin provisioned under a VMFS6 datastore.


      But the VM occupies 1Tb in the datastore instead 10Gb of real space used (as if it was thick instead thin)


      Do windows 10 support thin provisioned? I did something wrong of forget anything? How can I solve this?


      Thank you
