I have a VM with thin provisioning enabled.
Provisioned storage: 550GB
Usage Storage: 40GB
I am try to copy the .vmdk file from NFS data store, it says .vmdk file size is 550GB.
My question is why it says this is 550Gb wheni have only use 40GB. Since i am trying to copy the file, does it mean that i will copy full 550 GB or only the actual size 50GB. This is a NFS share.
could you please advice how it works. i mean why it display 550gb vmdk file in datastore when actual size is 40gb.
is it normal behaviour or something to do with teh NFS datastore.
