Hi
Can anyone explain the following to me:

Inside the VM the drive shows a usage of 149GB. When I select all folders on that drive I get a total of 5GB.
When I look at the VHDX file on the hosts file system the size is about 5GB - the 5GB pretty much reflect what I copied to that drive over the network.

So why on earth shows the guest VM a disk usage of 149GB for that drive under properties?
