Configuring Virtual Disks

Choose: VM > Settings > Hardware > Hard Disk

You can configure settings for a virtual disk when its virtual machine is powered off. By default, virtual disks created with Workstation have the following properties:

You can also specify modes for the disk other than the default; for example, you can specify that the disk is independent of snapshots and that changes are not saved to the disk. See Advanced Disk Configuration: Setting the Virtual Device Node and Mode.

Under Disk file you can view the path and filename for the file used to store the virtual disk.

The Capacity section displays the following information:

The Disk information section displays a summary of the current configuration.

Settings displayed in the Disk information section are specified at the time you create the virtual disk and cannot be changed later.

If you are adding a new virtual disk, click Add to install the device.

To remove an existing virtual disk, select that disk, then click Remove.

Click OK to save the configuration and close the virtual machine settings editor

Defragmenting a Virtual Disk

Click Defragment to defragment the virtual disk. Defragmenting rearranges data on the virtual disk so that the individual blocks that make up the specific files on the virtual disk are contiguous.

Using the defragment feature improves the performance of your virtual disk, but it does not reduce the amount of storage space the virtual disk consumes on your host operating system. Defragmenting the disk can be a time-consuming process.

Note: The defragmentation process requires free working space on the host computer's disk. If your virtual disk is contained in a single file, for example, you need free space equal to the size of the disk's file.
