You can add virtual disks to the destination virtual machine and move source volumes in the new disks.

The number of virtual disks you can create depends on the number of volumes that exist on the source virtual machine. For example, if you have only one volume on the source virtual machine, you cannot add a virtual disk to the destination virtual machine.

You cannot move the system volume where the guest operating system is installed. For example, if your Windows operating system is installed on C:, you cannot move the C: volume.

Prerequisites

On the Options page of the Conversion wizard, click Data to copy in the options list.

Procedure

  1. From the Data copy type drop-down menu, select Select volumes to copy.
  2. Click Advanced and select the Destination layout tab.
  3. Select a volume from the list and click Add disk.

    A new virtual disk appears in the Destination layout column.

  4. Select a source volume and use the Move up or Move down buttons to accommodate the volume in the new virtual disk.

    The partitioning scheme of the first source volume that you move will determine the type of the new virtual disk on the destination virtual machine.

    If you leave the virtual disk empty, Converter Standalone does not create the virtual disk on the destination virtual machine.

Results

The selected source volume is copied to a new virtual disk on the destination virtual machine.
