Handling virtual machine files on Linux. I've been working on rsyncing and having issues, then I found compressing sparse file(s) while still maintaining their holes and had really good luck with the tar command: "tar -Sczvf sparse.img.tgz sparse.img" Knocked it down to 1/5 the size on disk and should let me download what I need in a couple of hours.
