[PVE-User] Backup Image Size

Hi everyone,

In one perticular VM I have running server 2008 r2 the os reports that
the drive is using 40gb(approx) but when I do a backup in proxmox the
image file it creates is 70gb.

Why is this? I'm guessing it's because of deleted files in the os maybe?

How can this be resolved?

Thank you
