    An option for not cleaning up the V2V directory after converting a server?

    I am moving some VMs over to Hyper-V this easter and really need the free space on the exisiting VMware SAN. As the V2V copies the vmdk's locally, I would like to leave them locally for backup purposes so I can delete them on the vmware-platform. My friend that should test the servers is not back before next week and I'm afraid to delete the old ones from vmware in case something went wrong during v2v

    Hello hal07,

    5nine V2V Easy Converter copies vmdk files to perform the conversion, but there is no point of keeping them on Hyper-V host after it has finished.
    Vmdk files remain on your SAN, so you can surely move them to a safe location manually.
