does it save the disks thin or thick

hi all,

when it does the backup, does it backup the vm disks thick or thin, or does it matter how the original vm was made ie with thick or thin disks?

thanks,
rob

Re: does it save the disks thin or thick

(c)XSIBackup Classic will always create thin or sparse disks, if the underlying FS supports this type of file. It wouldn't make sense to do it other way, as you can easily turn any thin disk into a thick provissioned one and you want a backup program to take advantage of space as much as possible.
