i want to convert a vhd-file to vdi and found a manual which says i have to convert the vhd first to bin. But qemu-img creates a 130GB file (even if theres not enough space on disk) from the 14GB vhd-file. Is this a common behavior ?
If the size (or maximum-size) of the partition in the VHD is 130GB, then yes, it's normal. VHD/VDI support "sparse" disk files, i.e. they only take up the actual amount of space used, not the specified size. BIN has no such support, so the VHD will be expanded out to the full size, although it will mostly be zeros.
