    As a newbie to Paragon HDM Suite 15: is it possible to convert one supported VD format to another e.g. pVHD to VMK etc?

    I could not find it anywhere in the interface or manual.

    Cheers,

    Dave

    If you are trying install the VD into a VM, look into PtoV Copy where you have a choice of formats to save. I don't know about a conversion but there is a PtoV Adjust but I'm unsure on what it exactly does.

    Thanks for the reply. I think I may have found the answer, but is not within the product range I was looking.
    I bought HDM Suite 15, but I may need the Pro version to do a V2V.

    Cheers,

    I just read the V2V section in the PDF for HDM15 Pro, kind of vague but I have HDM15S as well. Sounds like you just mount the VD and run the PtoV Copy. Not sure why one couldn't do that with HDM15S. I ran the PtoV Copy on my W7 HD and it took around four hours with 339GB of 688GB used.

    Tried to that: mount an image and try to convert it to another format image. It does not seem to work.

    That must be a Pro only option then.
