Problems converting Backup into VMware image

Postby egon128 » Thu Jan 20, 2011 12:13 am

Hallo,

I'm using EASEUS Todo Backup Home 2.0 on a Win 7 Home Prem Box. I have installed VMware Player. After creating an backup of C:/ I wanted to convert the .pbd file in Backup Management into a VMware File. I have chosen a path and given a name to the file, but when starting proceeding I get the error: Vmware disklib, short for VMware-vix-disklib-1.1.1-207031.i386.exe, not installed.

Thank for your advise
Egon

Dear Egon,

Thanks for contacting us.
Actually, if you want to convert the image, you need to install the "VMware-vix-disklib-1.1.1-207031.i386.exe" at first. And then you can run our product and convert it again.
And here is the download link.

Please try it and tell us the result.

Dear EASEUS Support Team,

thanx for the quick answer. I installed the VMware file. I was able to convert the file. I received a vdmk file. Unluckily a vdmk file can not be opened by VMware Player without a vmx file. As some research showed the vmx file seems to be the config file.
As I don't want to bother you, is there any online guidance, or best practice show case I missed?

Thanks for further help.
Egon

Dear Egon,

We are glad to hear from you again.
In your case, we suggest you use the following method to have a try.
1. Please run your VMware Workstation, and then click "Edit virtual machine settings".
2. Click "Add…"->choose "Hard Disk"->click "Next"->choose "Use an existing virtual disk"->"Next"->choose "Browse"
3. And then you can choose the vmdk file, and click "Finish". And then you can boot your VMware Player.

Sincerely,
