V6.1 File Copy Thin or Thick provision?

Post by awftong@fehd.gov.hk »

HI,
I'm testing the free version 6.1.
When I use the File Copy function to copy a powered off VM from a SAN storage to local disk (from the same ESXi 5 host), the file format changed from thin to thick. Is this the default behavior?

Thin disks cannot exist without being attached to a registered VM, so the disk format is changed to thick during both File Copy and VM Copy jobs.
