comment Dell VRTX - slow cluster shared storage
Yes, that's why I made a distinction between local caching and coherent caching.

comment Dell VRTX - slow cluster shared storage
If you actually did turn on local caching in the controllers, that would invalidate the cluster file system that you're trying to use, which is probably why you're not seeing the option to do it. If you want to use CSV, any caching has to be coherent across all the hosts that have access to the volume.

comment Convert Folders to VHD file
If your files are corrupted, then they'll still be corrupted when you convert the volume to a VHD. If they're not corrupted, then ROBOCOPY will work nicely.

comment Restoring a VM from a backed up snapshot in Windows Server 2008R2
No. It can be backed up while it's running. If it has the Backup Integration Component installed within the VM, the VM will actually keep running through the whole process. If not, it's is paused briefly.

comment Restoring a VM from a backed up snapshot in Windows Server 2008R2
I think that you missed my point a little. Even in Server 2008R2, when you ask for a backup of a VM (which very much does exist as a feature) what it actually does is create a snapshot of the VM and then allow you to copy that snapshot to other media. It just doesn't label it a "snapshot." It's labeled as a "backup."

comment reached the maximum partitions on my virtual machine
And why are you creating a new partition when you do extend the disk, rather than just extending an existing file system?
