• query on sparse file

    Hi,
    I have a question on Sparse Files....
    In any OS supporting sparse file, if we take backup and reads on disk data for that sparse file(Non zero data) and transfer that much data to the tape and while retreving that data back on source machine we always get what we have taken(on disk data). So is that creates any problem on Source machine, from where we have taken backup(After retreving that data).
    I am thinking in context of system files. Assume that some files in Windows directory contails such data.....then ?????
