How much space is the initial seed backup going to take?
Often users are surprised to see their initial (seed) backup image taking more space then they expected. Meaning the backup image is larger than the amount of disk usage of the partition they have backed up. This is because CDP backs up performs replications at the sector level. While unallocated disk sectors are excluded, the formatting of the file system must still be included, in order to get a true sector level image.
This formatting includes items like super block, block groups, block and inode allocation maps, and directory inodes. This data is not reflected in most disk usage reporting tools...The output of "# df \-h" is an example.
