Sofware compression on VMWARE backup to disk
I have enabled software compression on backup to disk jobs of VMs. When I look at the size of the backup in both Backup Exec and in Windows Explorer there is no compression. File sizes are equal to the amount of data on the disk in question - a compression ration of 1:1. I have checked the job logs and confirmed that software compression is selected.
Should I be seeing some compression or is software compression not available when backing up VMs?
