VMWare Converter for System Backups

Joshua Wood Joshua Wood Profile: Joshua Wood

While there are several ways to image a desktop or server there are only a few that can go from the backup file to a running state without being converted or restored using a simlar method as the backup. VMWare converter is a free tool that allows you to take running OS’s and “convert” them to virtual versions of themselves.

While it may be a bit unorthodox using VMWare converter to backup your systems before a major change can really save you some time. The nice thing about using VMWare converter is that apart from being free it will give you a running OS as soon as it is done if you need recover from a failure.
