I want to do

  • regular
  • automatic
  • backup of my vmware virtual machine (16GB big, Windows XP)
  • that is running

I do not have an access to ESX admin. I can ask our admin to set up something in the admin area but I do not have access for myself.

I have installed few programs that are important to me so I want to have working backup at any point of time.

Note: I know I can copy all the files when the virtual machine is not up and running.


Why don't ask them do it for you?

You can get reference and download a free backup script here
