  • Mounting VMware drives without VMware

    Over in the Virtual PC/Server forum, Tonyyeb asked if there is any way to mount virtual PC/Server drives from the host OS, without running or using the virtual machine. Someone responded that winimage can do this in its new Beta version.

    I wanted to point out, over here in the vmware forum, that this is possible with vmware too. In fact, it has been possible for a long with using a tool that vmware offers for download (for free).

    The tool is called diskimage. It can mount VMware disks and they are mapped like a regular hard drive.

    You can download this tool at-

    I hope this helps out,
    David
