New at SQLMag - Disk2Vhd

I just posted a new entry on my SQLMag Tool Time blog that you might enjoy. Thanks to my friend and fellow MVP John Paul Cook for bringing Disk2Vhd to my attention on his blog. The free tool is enables migration of a physical machine (PM) to a virtual machine (VM), while the PM is running.  You can download it from Microsoft here.  John also has lots of other great information about VM migration here.  Note that John's content relates to Hyper-V. So if you're looking for VMWare tools, keep looking. Of course, if you find similar free tools for VMWare, let us know by posting here!

According do VMWare's website the VMWare Converter is a free download, too (although you have to register). I have tried version three quite a while ago and have used it for virtualizing my old desktop pc while it was running.
