Can Avamar VM proxies be thin provisioned?

Does anyone know if it is possible to run Avamar VM proxies with thin provisioning?

I understand that the "preferred method" is to use thick provisioning for the proxies. I also understand that the proxies are set up with thick provisioning by default when they are deployed by the Proxy Manager, so any reconfiguration would likely need to be done after the initial deployment.

I am just trying to find out whether this directive is just because we'd prefer them to be set up that way, or because setting them up with thin provisioning causes some less than desirable things to happen with respect to performance or other aspects of the backups.

All comments/feedback appreciated - thanks.
