Whats the size of the vm/backup source?
ven16Author 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.
