    Which DISK_BACKUP_FORMAT choice for easiest recovery?

      Hi all,

      My lowly lab runs a mix of guest disk types , Thin , 'Thick Lazy Zeroed' & 'Thick Eager Zeroed'


      (ESXi 4.1u5 with 3 local datastores.)


      For easy to recover backups, is it best to 'match' the individual vm  backup configs to the disk type that each uses?

      Is the default 'Zeroed Thick' is best choice for the Thick Lazy Zeroed vm's ?
