    ghettoVCB relies on snapshots but when I create a snapshot, the *-flat.vmdk file changes constantly.

        I see that ghettoVCB relies on creating a snapshot to backup the *-flat.vmdk files, so, I have created a snapshot of a thick lazy zeroed VM disk and the *-flat.vmdk file has different md5sum's each time I run that command while the VM is running.

        So I wonder if the backup will be generated correctly and consistently.

        This is on ESXi 5.1.

        Is anyone able to reproduce this md5sum change while there is one snapshot active?

        Should I ignore this issue and trust ghettoVCB?

        I am doing something wrong or misunderstanding anything?

        Thanks a lot for any information you may have.
