we have ESX and I want to backup my virtual machine (Win XP) by copying its files.
I do not have access to ESX admin console but I do have read access to my virtual machine files.
- I can copy them when the machine is shut down.
- I cannot copy the files when the machine is running.
Is there any way (using freeware/open source solution only) how I can copy the files when the virtual machine is running?
