    Hello,

    I have a question about an odd issue with a Windows 7 64bit VM in VMware Fusion. I know little about virtualization, so it may be normal behavior, but I wanted to know.

    My VM has 50GB space allocated and in the VM Windows claims that I am only using 24GB of space (it is very minimal usage). However, the VM file in Finder is 34 GB in size. What would cause the 10GB difference?

    Thanks.
