I am looking to use VMware converter to make a virtual machine of my windows install so I can use it within linux without restarting. Does anyone know how much space the virtual machine image will take up on a disk? I looked on the vmware converter faqs but couldn't find any info. I want to buy a usb stick to hold the image. I realize that it will depend on size of the drive in use, but how much will it compress the drive for the vm image? Thanks to anyone who has info. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
