    Currently Parallels Desktop 19 for Mac Pro Edition only supports fixed disk images when adding a secondary disk to a macOS client vm. This means every time the secondary disk is used, the ENTIRE disk image is backed up by the host -- which will quickly fill up any backup storage system. Adding support for sparseimage and sparsebundle formats means only the data which changes on the disk image will be backed up by the host.
