Reclaim Space: Great new tool from VMware Labs (Fling)

VMware Labs have released a great new tool for reclaiming space from a thin provisioned disk/LUN.

The disk must be a local physical disk or LUN, and must be used as a RDM within the vm.

Written by Faraz Shaikh and Prasanna Aithal, Guest Reclaim reclaims dead space from NTFS volumes hosted on a thin provisioned SCSI disk.

  • Reclaim space from Simple FAT/NTFS volumes
  • Works on WindowsXP to Windows7
  • Can reclaim space from flat partitions and flat disks
  • Can work in virtual as well as physical machines

You can check it out at http://labs.vmware.com/flings/guest-reclaim.
