VMware Converter may at first seem like a bygone tool for our virtualization practice. I disagree! There are plenty of trick plays for today’s IT pro to use VMware Converter, and in this piece I’ll explain how to shrink a VMDK.
The task of making a VMDK bigger is very easy; the dynamic growth of a thin-provisioned disk or the hot-add of new disks are common practice for vSphere administrators. But the ability to expand the high boundary of a VMDK is easily done through the vSphere Client.
