This is better question to post in the ESX or vSphere community forums, since Studio is not in the picture. However, it seems possible that your VM was exported thick in one case, and thin in another. You don't mention the version of ESX, nor the actual size of the disks, though, so I more information would definitely help to narrow down the cause. Does this happen (the new smaller size) every time you export? And it might be important if you changed settings in the vSphere client for the VM that you might think were innocuous, but in fact were not.
1) I am using ESX 4.12) My Virtual disk size is 60GB, and in both the cases(smaller size and larger size) i exported using thin proisioning.3) Every time i export the image it is the same 9.45GB that is exported.4) I will post this quesiton in ESX and Vsphere communities also, thanks for your feebackThanks & RegardsEshwar
