C:Userslenovo>docker image prune -f
Total reclaimed space: 0B

when i pull docker image my disk space are taken,that’s OK.but when i try to delete that image/any image & container docker shows the image/container is deleted by it don’t free up my disk virtual machine gets bigger & bigger in size.

I have tried all the commands which are provide by docker like

  • docker container prune -f
  • docker image prune -f
  • docker volume prune -f

But none of them are working.
