VM image folder filling up with very large files

Post by jamescodefour » Fri Jun 02, 2017 11:20 pm

Hi the folder where I keep my VM on the QNAP is filling up each day with large files - what are these? do I need them, I don't have a VM backup setup, I use Rsync to off-site the VM folder

my mistake, the backup was still set, these are snapshots created by the VM Station backup tool.

thanks
