Disk2Vhd is a free utility software developed by SysInternals for Windows-based PCs. With this software, users can create Virtual Hard Disk (VHD- Microsoft’s Virtual Machine disk format) of physical disks for Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines or Microsoft Virtual PC.
The app features Windows’ Volume Snapshot tool that creates consistent real-time snapshots of the volumes being converted. It also allows users to create VHDs on local volumes; although, its performance would be better if it’s on a different location.
In addition, this freeware retains the disk’s partition details and copies only the data contents on each volume. It also features command-line option that allows users to create the VHDS based on their needs such as the capability to specify the volumes by drive letter.
