VHDX size is huge! 5.5GB vhdx vs ~450 MB images+volumes

Hello.

  • OS Version/build: Windows 10 LTSC / 17763.678
  • App version: Docker version 19.03.8, build afacb8b

I’m newbie on docker… have only 3 small images, as you can see here:

$ docker images -a

hasura/graphql-engine   v1.1.0           d244a461a2d3     3 weeks ago       41.3M

$ docker system df

But my vhdx disk has about 5.5 G size. How this is possible ?
