vPower NFS disk space requirements?

Sorry but I could not find the disk space requirements as stated below when you set this up.
Would it be the size of your largest VM?

"Enable vPower NFS service on the mount server (recommended)

Specify vPower NFS write cache location on the mount server. Make sure the selected volume has enough free disk space available to store changed disk blocks of instantly recovered VMs."

The recommended minimum is 10 GB, however it depends on how intensively you will change data on the VM's disk during Instant Recovery/SureBackup operations. Please see this article for more info.

In theory, could reach the entire VM size (in case all the blocks are requested from the backup during VM operation). Also depends on the amount of concurrently running Instant Recovery/SureBackup VMs.
