Create vm using vmdk file downloaded with vddk library

Hi Team,

I am working on a backup solution task for which I need to backup vmdk files before deleting vSphere SDDC and later on I should be able to create vm using vmdk files as disk. Since number of vms are very large, I am using vddk library to read vmdk files and save it on cloud. I am facing issue while uploading vmdk files to vSphere using vCenter UI. I guess because files downloaded from vddk is not stream optimized. 

I used tried converting vmdk file downloaded from vddk library using vdiskmanager but it fails with error "Failed to convert disk: The specified file is not a virtual disk (0x3ebf)."

My question is can import a vmdk file downloaded using vddk library to vsphere and create a vm using it?
