VMware Labs: Guest Reclaim Fling

On July 1st, VMware Labs released a new Fling called Guest Reclaim, a free tool intended to reclaim dead space from NTFS volumes hosted on a thin provisioned SCSI disk.

The free tool can also reclaim space from full disks and partitions, thereby wiping off the file systems on it. As the tool deals with active data, please take all precautionary measures understanding the SCSI UNMAP framework and backing up important data.

Features

  • Reclaim space from Simple FAT/NTFS volumes
  • Works on WindowsXP to Windows7
  • Can reclaim space from flat partitions and flat disks
  • Can work in virtual as well as physical machines
