VMware Workstation Plug-in
VMware Workstation Plug-in: This dedicated plug-in allows saving images of VMware virtual machines. In this chapter, we are describing how to backup VMware images from outside using the plug-in.
Restoring Task from a VMware Image
The current version of Handy Backup 7 does not allow restoration of VMware workstations to another place. You can automatically restore a VMware snapshot only only to its original location. To create a restoration task, please follow the next steps:
Attention: Do not click the "Change Location" button on the restoration dialog – it would not work for VMware workstations.
When starting VMware restoration, the plug-in firstly stops all running instances of VMware virtual machines and all Windows services relating to these instances. Then the plug-in copies VMware backup images to their original locations, and restarts the services it stop earlier.
