You can make sure that you do not lose data from services running on the source machine. You can select the services that you want to stop before Converter Standalone synchronizes the data between the source and destination machine. As a result, the services do not generate data while source and destination machines are synchronized.

You can stop services on the source only when you convert a powered on Windows machine.

Prerequisites

On the Options page of the Conversion wizard, click Services in the options list.

Procedure

  1. Click the Source services tab.
  2. To stop a service on the source machine before synchronization, highlight a service and select the Stop check box to the right.
  3. Save your settings.
