comment Why does VMware VM believe its disk usage is larger than it is?
No problem. I agree, only compression makes sense, but it's surprising I find zero resources that say it uses compression. Standalone VM, not a linked-clone. I do have other machines on this host. Storage device of the host? Dual SSDs/Software RAID-0/NTFS. VM is thin-provisioned single-file VMDK. Snapshots? Maybe, but now I can't check because this was a year ago.

91 INSIDE the VM. 80.1 on the host. The VM says it's larger than it is.

Then provisioning is about having a 120GB "disk" but if only 80GB is used then it only takes up 80GB of space. The situation here is 91GB of data is taking 80.1 GB of space.

@DanielBeck Correct. The same method I'm using the view the size of the folder of the VM on the host. Not that that's significant.

Pretty sure you missed the point here. The question is regarding how the resulting VM files (including, the one representing the entire disk) is smaller than what the VM believes it is.

Understood. The motherboard I'm working with is the ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe (Gen 1).

comment Google Chrome crashes when using Remote Desktop Protocol
One difference between RDP and using the system locally is the graphics driver used. Maybe Chrome is trying to use hardware acceleration and it's not available when it thinks it should be.
