As the first investigation step I would recommend checking the state/version of VMware tools installed inside the guest, as we retrieve the said information from them.

Also, have you mounted .iso image to the said letter by any chance?

Thanks.

Usually, this happens because VMware tools didn't update the information of Guest OS disks space in a timely manner, VM reboot solves this issue indeed. What kind of VM is this? A backup proxy?

Oh..ok, seems like you're correct. I have seen similar behavior when native Windows FLR restore was used. Let me check with the dev team if it is possible to suppress these warnings.
