How to automatically backup a running VMWARE Workstastion virtual machine?

Hello,

I need a way to automatically backup a running vmware workstation virtual machine, is it possible?

The best way I found to do this is to stop the machine, create a snapshot, start the machine, and then close that snapshot to other place, so this way the downtime of the machine is the lowest possible...

Is there a way to make this automatic or at least simpler?

 

Thanks,

JS

As your post needs moving to the area for Workstation Pro, I have reported it to the moderators.

Please do not create a duplicate post, or it will just need reporting too.

If you look at the path above your opening comment, you'll see that this post has now been moved.
