Re: How to Shrink Windows 10 Guest in VirtualBox?

I share your frustration I hate windows 10 soon as I figure out a Google Earth Portable that runs in Linux Mint, Windows 10 is gone I also would settle for a Cache Manager that would manage Google Earths Cache files (copy them to another drive) that runs in Linux Mint..

Thanks again for the help.

My installation notes from when I had to resize the virtual disk, in my case making it bigger. Have no idea what would happen if you try and shrink to less than the existing win partition. From memory, I couldn't resize the existing VM so had to clone it, can't remember why, but it would be good pr...
