Not enough free space to create a full clone out of a linked clone with VMware


  • You have a linked clone.
  • You do not have any snapshots, just the current state.
  • You want to create a full clone out of the base image(s) and the current state using the VMware Wizard.
  • You get the error message that you need (3.5 GB) of free hard drive space.
  • Freeing space on the source and target drive does not seem to help.


  • Just create a snapshop and re-try the full-clone-creation.
