Hi Poh,

Sorry for the delayed reply...

The first thing you'll need for this is _at least_ 100G of free disk space.
(100G should be sufficient, but it's generally a good idea to have a little
more than necessary just to be on the safe side.)

I will also still need to see the guest file system layout, if you wouldn't

Having the file system information will allow me to provide you with
information that is specific to your configuration.
