Reduce Hard Drive Size When Running Windows 10 in a VM

If you are running Windows 10 in a VM chance are you could use every bit of hard drive space available. Get a few gigs back by disabling hibernation, which you probably aren't using if you're running in a VM. Here's a link to the Microsoft support article here but the directions are copied below just to make things easier.

  1. Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start Search box.
  2. In the search results list, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator.
  3. When you are prompted by User Account Control, click Continue.
  4. At the command prompt, type powercfg.exe /hibernate off, and then press Enter.
  5. Type exit, and then press Enter to close the Command Prompt window.
