How to check how much disk space left inside Guest OS?

This post was originally published on this site

Based on the PowerCLI on-line help, we can create a new virtual disk then format it with NTFS.


But seems like we can’t get inside the Guest OS and check how much save left in C: drive or D: drive. We can do this by using Get-WMIObject (Good example here –>


But using WMI  means the Guest OS needs to be visible on the network, firewall ports opened, WMI services must be up, and users must be authorised.


Is there is a method via VMware Tools?


Many thanks in advance
