Community Forum > Quantastor Free Space Not Showing

Hello all,
I have the following issue with my Quantastor:
I have connected Esxi hosts to quantastor volumes.
I have delited many snapshots and vdisks from datastore, but the free space does not show in Quantastor web console.
Esxi host shows for example free space - 800gb and quantastor web - 300
What can i do to defragment disks for example?

Hello Svetoslav,

This may be due to VMware not having reclaimed the deleted data blocks yet. If that is the case please follow the procedure outlined in the VMware KB here: https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2057513

It is generally a good idea to perform the VMware reclaim operation periodically if your use case involves creating and deleting VM's or VM snapshots. Note, VMFS6 volumes available in vSphere 6.5 and newer automatically perform a periodic reclaim.

Please let us know if this helps resolve the behavior you are seeing.

Thank You,
Chris Golden
