    I have SmartGuard enabled and Optimize for Time Machine checked on a Windows 10 VM.
    Every change to the system, even simply booting then immediately shutting down, results in a large backup (10-12GB)

    Am I doing something wrong or is this intended behavior? 10-12GB doesn't seem very "optimized."

    I tried chat support, then phone support, then this, with no help from any. Reading other posts, I see the community is more competent than paid support staff. But relying on volunteers to support a paid product is underhanded. Between this and the self-destructing license I'll return to VMWare when my license expires.
