    Hi,

    I need to switch from VirtualBox to VMware fusion, however the virtual HD file formats are different. Whats the easiest way to migrate?

    Thanks.

    There's a command line utility in VirtualBox for making copies of disk images in different formats. Have a look in the manual at VBoxManage clonehd and make the cloned version have a VMDK extension and VMWare should be able to read it.
