    Hello to all, I've just registered to Wilders today. Since many of you are security experts, there are a few things I would like to ask you.

    I have heard that the newest beta version; VmPlayer 3.0 now has the ability to create images of the Host system. If I use it to do so, will I have to purchase aditional windows licenses in order to run the image of the native system?
    (I have Vista Home)

    Will the image that I create, require as much HDD space to install as currently taken so far?

    How does the endpoint security level compare to that of Vm Workstation?

    How do I go about recovering files that I want to keep, by transfering them from the Guest to the Host PC?

    You will need licenses for as many guests that you run.
    Player also has Unity, shared folders and drag and drop with the host.
