LDMS 9.6 SP2
I created an image of a Server and it was about 2.5 GB, now I created another one and it is 10 GB the HD size in the Server is 30 GB.
Now the first image was created based on a brand new installation of windows, I will call this Image1.
The Second image was taken after Image1 was loaded in new hardware and some modifications were done, (install some basic applications, user accounts, no more than 1 GB ad added stuff total)
Why is my new image so big?
Would the image of an image had something to do with it.
I used this before I captured an image:
shrink <value given by querymax command above>
I also reduced the Reduce Page File Size and cleaned up the temp folders then did a defrag before my sysprep.
