Below is a screen grab of the job details, with a server highlighted. This VM has two thinned disks, residing in one datastore which is on the SAN.
Both disks have about 30GB used space.
The backup seems to indicate it is using CBT to back these up, I thought that was just for incremental runs?
Also, the amount of data read is much higher on one disk.
Can someone tie this together for me?

As for Hard Disk 2, it has read 200.9 GB, and that is because the VMDK size is 200.9 GB, regardless how much is used within the VM. This thin provisioned disk; at a certain point, 200 GB was used on that disk causing it to expand the VMDK. Space reclaim on VMDKs was unsupported until now with the vSphere 5.1 release.

Actually that is incorrect, as CBT is used during full job runs as well.poulpreben wrote:You are right, CBT is only used for incremental jobs.
There is an existing thread where I explain this in more details, please search if you are interested.
