Re: Free VMware Tool Converts Physical Machines to VMs

I did read that and it seems really cool, but is there a restore from BU feature? I can't say that I saw that. At least I didn't see the ability to restore a VM to a Physical Machine.

If you or someone else knows or figures it out, keep us posted.

Re: Free VMware Tool Converts Physical Machines to VMs

It would at the least be able to back up individual files and such I suppose. Being that you could transfer them directly or create a shared folder between the two to copy files. At that point, it's not much better than backing up to a CD or some other media.

It would be pretty cool if they do come out with something that can reverse the process and restore a physical machine from a virtual machine.
