linux backup grows too large
I have a SLES 11 server thast is a VM guest in Hyper-v. The actual size of the server is only 50GB. When i back it up it tries to grow to 100s even 1000s of GBs. What is the deal and waht is the proper way to perform a file level backup? If i run a NON GRT backup of the host it backs it up but i would liek to get more detailed than replace the whole thing. Thanks.
