I'm experiencing the exact problem, a 50GB VMDK file that has been thin provisioned to 12GB is being backed up as 50GB.
Anyone know the answer?

This is no longer an issue, although it appears to be backing up the data nothing is actually being allocated. Space is "reserved" but released when other backups require it.

Have you done a "shrink disk" with the vmware tools on the virtual disk you are trying to backup ?

I looked at that but is not the best solution, I'd rather find the solution through Symantec. I don't believe in 3rd party patch fixes.

I don't clear you question. but I think VCB should backup Image Vmware and Backup exec should backup only data, SQL file.
Example you should backup Image by VCB full once a week
and Backup exec backup data everyday.
Can you do with this solution?

Same problem for me but i use FC between ESX and SAN (and ethernet between esx and backup exec).
