Windows 7: Windows Sysinternals - Disk2vhd v1.0

Windows Sysinternals - Disk2vhd v1.0

Stumbled across this today...


Disk2vhd is a utility that creates VHD (Virtual Hard Disk - Microsoft’s Virtual Machine disk format) versions of physical disks for use in Microsoft Virtual PC or Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines (VMs). The difference between Disk2vhd and other physical-to-virtual tools is that you can run Disk2vhd on a system that’s online. Disk2vhd uses Windows’ Volume Snapshot capability, introduced in Windows XP, to create consistent point-in-time snapshots of the volumes you want to include in a conversion. You can even have Disk2vhd create the VHDs on local volumes, even ones being converted (though performance is better when the VHD is on a disk different than ones being converted).

I was the one that mentioned it, then pinned the thread when a member pointed out the limitations of this software....

His points are very valid, but when coupled with the article I found via TechTarget, I may have to revisit that post....
