Backing up Hyper-V virtual machines to disk folder with GRT enabled "copies" in IMG folders the entire VHD files of the virtual machine so including the empty space of the virtual machine's partitions with no compression options. It is consuming lot of space on teh destination disk. It could be great if IMG folders could be compressed or if Backup Exec could backup only used space of the VHD files.
