[PVE-User] Uncompressed backups are compressed?

Hi,

 

I may be missing the point here, but when choosing to backup a VM with
compression = none, instead of LZO or GZIP, I'd expect an uncompressed
file to be produced?

 

I'm trying to backup to a device which will perform block-level dedupe,
but I guess that won't work too well when e.g. a 32GB RAW file turns
into a 15.9GB .vma file. Or is alignment preserved despite the
difference in file size?

 

Thank you,

Chris
