I have set up a web server in virtualbox using qemu image format ( Centos7-xfce_Feb.qcow ) which keeps growing but when I check the partitions in the image I can see very little increase ( approx 100meg) even though the image file is growing from 5.6gig to 13 gig.

Any ideas why the image is increasing would be appreciated.

Edit just tried converting to vdi format but virtual box would not start
error is "no bootable disk"

VBoxManage convertfromraw Centos7-xfce_Feb.qcow Centos7-xfce_Feb.qcow.vdi --format VDI
