Weblog entry #195 for ajt
All of them are about 2G of used space in the VM, but only one of them is a 2G sparse file on the outside, the others don't appear to be sparse any more. I tried copying one of them with "cp --sparse=always" but that didn't help, and fsck of the VM's file system find anything, it really is only 2G in the VM and the remaining 18G is empty space.
Not sure what to do next. If it were not a hosted machine I'd just move the images to a local server and copy the contents into a new disk image and not worry, but as it's hosted I only have so much RAM/disk to play with on the box and moving 200G files over the public internet is impossible.
It's something to keep me occupied anyway.
