Thread: Unable to expand Hard Disk Space Vmware Player

    Question Unable to expand Hard Disk Space Vmware Player

    When I click on the hardisk and then utilities expand it says I have to first delete all the snapshots. I tried moving the snapshots to a different directory in Dolphin. But it still says the same thing. What am I missing? Is there some other way to delete the snapshots? I really need to expand the HD space because the xp vm keeps complaining it is out of hd space and I can't install new Programs.

    Just a guess. Copy (don't move) the backed up snapshot files back. Then delete from the player options. I suspect that the player may keep some internal track of the backups and may still think they exist because they are on some internal list. If that does not work check over on the VMware boards

    Question Re: Unable to expand Hard Disk Space Vmware Player

    How do i delete from the player options?

    is there a delete snapshot files option?

    I couldn't find it.


    I can just create another snapshot after the disk is already expanded.

    I also those snapshots backed up on another pc.

    As I said it was just a guess I don't run Player. Best to check with the VMware people. Your chances of getting an answer are higher.
