Migrating VM from Thick-Provisioned Eager Zeroed to Thick-Provisioned Lazy Zeroed

I have noticed you can change Disk Provisioning on a Windows guest from Thick-Provisioned LAZY Zeroed to Thick-Provisioned EAGER Zeroed yet NOT the reverse.

So, It will not change back to LAZY.

Any other persons able to confirm?

No, it was to test why backups were failing. Thanks

I guess the reason for this is that there's actually no use case for this. Why would you want to make your VM slower?
