Hello Shain,

I don't know if that is possible for the used QEMU qcow2 files, but i think
the bigger problem is the filesystem used in that file i.e. ext3 or smth.
similar which can't be downsized. I for myself use a big XFS-partition in
addition to the root filesystem on a ext3.
But I had some bad experiences with that filesystem, because it doesn't
respond sometimes for about 500secs and makes the whole vm stuck.

Bye and very good work proxmox-Team,
your work is much appreciated!
