Cold Clone Converter vs vmware-mount + robocopy /mir

In case Cold Clone Converter fails during the copy-stage you can also use vmware-mount.exe and mount an existing blank remote disk on an ESX.

Then run robocopy /mir

If you are clever the remote disk is already bootable Smiley Wink

Making some speed-comparison tests right now

First results are boring:

task : import a physical XP - machine to ESX - example installation was about 3 GB in a 8 Gb partition

Converter used with sector-copy option: about 12 minutes

VMware-mount and robocopy /mir : about 12 minutes too
