I’m a rookie with esxi and I created a thin provisioned disk on one of my VM’s. with 4TB.
It’s taking up the full 4TB of disk space on my QNAP NAS, yet it’s never had more than about 2.8TB.
**Why would that be?**
Below is how it’s configured in ESXI and also a picture of the size being eaten up on my NAS.
​[Why is all 4TB being used if it’s thin provisioned?](https://preview.redd.it/l4gisd3loxp51.jpg?width=1804&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=7a69effb36ba7ca86e4cf13925676fc8e4b7dd41)
