remove unused space from a disk RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a VM which has 500 GB of disk connected, it is hardly used currently utilized around 30 GB.

    Is there a way to using "disk mirroring option" to reduce the total space and return un-allocated space back to datastore

    eg: by attaching a new disk with 50 GB, adding it in mirror with existing 500 (GB) disk (not sure if size difference between 2 disks is acceptable before creating mirroring)

    syncing the data, break the mirror and remove 500 GB disk

    If there is any other way to optimize disk space/storage space, i would like to know to save some costing
