I have been able to restore a virtual restore for a few days successfully but this morning I received an error message that there was insufficient free space on the disk. The size reported is the full db size (500 GB). Why did the restore fail since we are really using a 32 GB compressed red gate backup file and the virtual files are very small? I don't want to have to have that much space have to be reserved for the db when really the virtual db will have a much smaller footprint.


  • Hi, did you set the VirtualDiskSize parameter in the HyperBac config file? What is it currently set to?
