    Yes this would improve backup initial replica creation time speed for us and restore speed as our primary file server has millions of files and its easier to backup a VHDS vs millions of file from speed/time standpoint. We get 4MBs with a bunch of small files but with a large block like vhdx/vhds/iso we get Gigabit speeds because of the nature of the file system I guess. If our file server ever went down we could have it back up in hours vs days and days. Also if we ever need to perform a consistency check it should be a lot faster vs touching millions of files. Thanks
