when you create the disk, there's an option to pre-allocate it - I chose that (the size had was a 1 GB disk). Not sure if that would make a difference as to how small it would compress
Skydrive needs a Live ID to download a publicly shared file? That's hilarious. I should buy Dropbox shares (if I had the money). :-)
I can try again with a disk that is not pre-allocated
Could be, if it doesn't zero-fill it
no, I think I just shared it with the option to edit
Qtask also needs cookies to get into a public file listing
(If only Dropbox had public shares ... :)
creating the VM again without pre-allocating the disk to see if it'll compress more
with 0.6.6, did you choose the top compression with 7zip?
I just did it at whatever is the default
also, not sure if versions after 9.20 compress any better - do they?
Yes, was going to say that, highest compression. It takes longer
I don't know about newer versions, but I do everything with 9.04 on Syllable
same size with the disk not pre-allocated
here's the depositfiles link:
Kaj, it looks like bloat is just the natural course :-)
was the prior image for an even older version of Workstation than 6?
Waited a minute, watched ads, says download will take 61 minutes, answered captcha, got popup ads, chose downloading, get same popup ad over and over, no download
VMware version: don't remember. I never made them myself
