"Copy-NAHostfile" Efficiency

JAMES_BEESLEY

Hi there

Just a question regarding the cmdlet used to clone VHDX files "Copy-NAHostFile". As I understand this creates a sub cloned image of the original VHDX file you are cloning which in turn uses next to no space on the volume. However if I was then to move this file that I created within Windows on the LUN, in the same LUN just move the file to another folder. Do we still keep the storage efficiency that the "Copy-NAHostfile" cmdlet provides?

Cheers

James

Hi James,

Yes!  You can move the file to another folder within the same LUN without losing your storage efficiency.
