I have a Virtualbox drive that I'd like to convert to a VMware drive. The problem is that my disk size is dynamic, meaning that the maximal size is 2 TB! I don't have enough disk space to convert the drive to raw data as described at http://www.trippholden.com/?p=48.

Any suggestions on how to convert my drive to VMware? I'll be using workstation 6.5.

See this post.

Reading through the comments of the blog you show, I saw the most elegant solution. Just need to use VirtualBox itself: Excerpted from VirtualBox User Manual version 2.14, page 108:

VBoxManage clonehd <uuid>|<filename> <outputfile> { -format VDI|VMDK|VHD|RAW|<other> } { -remember }

format: Allow to choose a file format for the output file different from the file format of the input file.

Remember: Keep the destination image registered after it was successfully written.
