Hi folks

Error from backup

<WARNING> :  Warning - `1:\VirtualDisk_1.vmdk' size shrunk during save

<WARNING> :  Expected 42949672960 bytes for `1:\VirtualDisk_1.vmdk', got 0 bytes


Full VM-VADP backed up size just 29KB

sg completion shows this error

82788:nsrvadp_save: Identified an independent disk with label "Hard disk 1" within the VM. This disk shall not be part of backup.
There are no available virtual disks for backup.
