Tip: Switch Virtual Disk Type

Hard_disk_settings
Now that you’re familiar with sparse, preallocated, split, and monolithic virtual disks, you might be wondering how to switch from one format to another. In Fusion 2.0, this can be done through the virtual machine’s Hard Disk settings pane – select the options you want, then press Apply. Fusion will convert the disk’s format to the one you specified.

As usual, you can do this only if you don’t have any snapshots, and you will potentially need as much free space as the maximum size of the virtual disk.
