    • Closed

    So everyone not sure if this is a bug but I thought i'd post it. I increased a vdisk by mistake & like normal I was going to use command line to resize the vdisk. I get this this error now....


    /mnt/user/domains/Windows Server 2019# qemu-img resize vdisk2.img 30G
    WARNING: Image format was not specified for 'vdisk2.img' and probing guessed raw.
             Automatically detecting the format is dangerous for raw images, write operations on block 0 will be restricted.
             Specify the 'raw' format explicitly to remove the restrictions.
    qemu-img: Use the --shrink option to perform a shrink operation.
    qemu-img: warning: Shrinking an image will delete all data beyond the shrunken image's end. Before performing such an operation, make sure there is no important data there.


    Ok So I try shrink here is the output of that:


    /mnt/user/domains/Windows Server 2019# qemu-img shrink vdisk2.img 30G
    qemu-img: Command not found: shrink
    Try 'qemu-img --help' for more information


    and lets say shrink is in the help telling you how to use shrink.......;.l../.!


    What the @#$&&#^$^@^@! I need to get this file size back to 30G from 300G.
