Nobody has answered the question of disk space usage. ïLet's say I have
five Windows 2008 servers. Right now they are using file based, growable

They each have a disk0 that is growable and partitioned like:
c: = 25gb
e: = 175gb (using round numbers)

Using clvm, would I be using 1TB of storage for these five domUs?
