    Hi everyone.
    My VSphere topology goes as follows:
    In a physical server of 2TB i created a Datastore (170 GB) and installed a VM with Windows server 2012 R2. Next i created another datastore with 1.6 TB and used it as a partition on my Windows Server 2012 R2 VM to save the user’s data. Now i wish to shrink that 1.6 TB datastore and because i have been instructed to install another VM on the same physical server so i need around 300 GB space. I have tried some methods i found online but none of them was straight forward and that was really frustrating. Any help appreciated.
