With Converter Standalone 6.2, you can change the default destination provisioning disk type from thick to thin.


  1. Navigate to the %ProgramData%\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone directory.
  2. Open the converter-worker.xml file in a text editor.
  3. Locate the <defaultValues><preferThinDiskType> tag and change its value to true.
  4. Restart the worker service for the change to take effect.


This change affects all future conversions until the value is restored to false and the service is restarted.
