Commented:
i tested 2 servers one is app server provisioned 124GB but used 17.8GB
and the second one is file server provisioned 1.7TB(in three VMDK files as 3 drives) and used 712GB.

but these are backing up from windows systems as mentioned in snapshot.

Maybe timeout when creating snapshot? Could you try to remove all snapshots on VM and redo backup?
