ok. just had a quick look, the qemu-generated .vmdk i have is 441MB uncompressed, and 79MB after 7z -mx=9.
That's better than expected. Maybe indeed a new 7-Zip version
That's with 7-Zip 9.20.
Do you think the VMDK could be dropped into the configuration file for our old image?
No idea, sorry. I was just wondering why I created the image as a .vmdk, but well -- at least that seems to compress quite well.
Thanks for checking
Adrian, I could try that with your OVF: use the configuration and replace the VMDK using QEmu. Could you upload it somewhere simple without the VMDK in it?
I can email it
Andreas, what size HD did you have for the VM you had?
OK, the email in my account here should work
The VB image is 10 GB; that shouldn't be the problem
hard to see why there's such a difference then
sent the ovf conf file
Just the file, or the archive without the VMDK?
just the file
there are only three files one of them the checksums
not sure that's needed
let me send that as well
Did VMware make the archive, or did you pack the files manually?
