In my snapshot; on my replica total vmdk disk size above 400GB but server's provisoned disk size just 314GB. This difference that I want to explain.

How many restore points do you have configured in the replication job?

This is expected, as the sum of restore points plus base virtual disk should always be bigger than the size of the original VM.

to jmmarton :

10 restore points in my replication job


to Vitality :

In that case, there is no problem and I will not encounter a trouble when I want to recover from this replica. Am I right ?

Thanks...

Yes, that's correct. Every restore point (snapshot) has its size, so the size of the entire replica VM can easily be larger than the size of the original VM virtual disks.
