Convert Disk Image to Virtual Disk File (.vmdk or .vhd)
Why convert a disk image to a virtual disk file
Differing from physical hard disk, the virtual hard disk is a file used as storage media for the virtual machine. P2V (physical to virtual) can help you:
- Migrate the operating system on the physical machine to a virtual machine when creating a new virtual machine.
- Convert physical disk image to virtual disk image to transfer data easily.
P2V (physical to virtual) function provided by EaseUS Todo Backup is the most time-saving way to create a new virtual machine.

1. Launch EaseUS Todo Backup and click "Tools" -> "P2V Recovery".
2. Then select the disk and partition backup image file to convert.
3. Choose the virtual machine name and then select the virtual software vendor: VMware or Virtual PC. Click Browse to modify the location to save the image file.
4. Click "Proceed".
