SBS 2011 convert to HyperV

Created: 14 Aug 2012 | 2 comments

Hello all.

SBS 2011 Drive C is 700GB-350GB used

The drive where i am backing up to is 400GB.

Will the convert work or fail?

Many thanks James.

Are you talking about backing up, or converting which are 2 different things!

If backing up, then probably not unless you tried to run the backup with dedupe.

If converting, if the conversion does a thin provisioning type of task where it edits out any space not in use, then it should fit.

Best thing to do in this case is to run the backup and see...
