  3. How do I convert a VHD to VMDK?

    I have made a VHD using DISK2VHD and I wanted to know how to convert the VHD to a VMware VMDK file.

    I have tried to download VSphere Converter, but my VMware account refused to send me my account activation emails.

    If there is any other software or converters I can use, that would be great

    boot the VM[VMDK] from the same machine I Converted[c:/] To vmdk... ma

    Why is this vmdk image corrupted? VERR_VD_VMDK_INVALID_HEADER

    What Happened

    • Two Virtualbox VMs were running normally. I shut VMs down then shutdown Win10.
    • I bought a stand-alone cloning device and did an offline bit-for-bit clone of old HDD to Samsung SSD.
    • I installed the new drive and rebooted from the Samsung SSD. Every application and file works as it did before, however, when I open my VMs I get the this new error.

    Failed to open a session for the virtual machine
    Could not open the medium c:\users\snapshots/{a557a07bc-e6ae-4520-b361-4a84137}.vmdk
    VMDK: descriptor does not start as expected in c:\users\snapshots/{a557a07bc-e6ae-4520-b361-4a84137}.vmdk
    {VERR_VD_VMDK_INVALID_HEADER}
    E_FAIL (0x800040005)


    What I have done so far

    I found links to this error suggesting to
    Download the VDD kit from VMWare

    Question

    This doesn't make sense. Internet searches suggest using a recovery tool.
    What I want to know is why this is the only file corrupted if I did a bit-for-bit clone? Why do I need these VMware tools for what appears to be just a snapshot?

    thanks
