Optimize your VMWare virtual machines.

Overview

Note: VMOptimizer is not being sold anymore and is listed only for people who had purchased it in the past.

VMOptimizer is a specialised tool for optimizing VMWare Fusion virtual machines. VM files are actually a directory full of files, each of which holds data for part of the virtual machine’s disk. As such, the individual files can be fragmented; the internal structure of the VM file can be fragmented; and the filesystem stored within it can be fragmented.

Just defragmenting the files won’t fix this (it only fixes one of the three problems). Just defragmenting from the guest operating system won’t fix it either (again, it fixes one of the three problems).

Easier: Instruct VMWare to create a single file for virtual HD. Sometimes defragment the file host side, sometimes defragment it client OS side.

Folks, after sorting the license issue (placing VMOptimizer.licenseKey into /Library) I can finally run this but get an error against my Virtual Disk.vmdk: "The operation couldn't be completed. (POSIX error 10002 - Unknown error: 10002)" Any ideas what on earth this could be - can't find anything googling...

The App is still prompting for a license and the links for key request are gone.

I just tried the demo but it can't find my VM. I have Windows 7 running via the latest version of Parallels on 10.7.2. I already own idefrag, so I was a little surprised to find this problem.

As I already owned iDefrag and have nothing but praise for that incredible program I gave VMO a quick trial and put my money down. Like some other's I had problems with defragmenting an XP VM but the guy's at Coriolis were extremely helpful and had the issue resolved in under 24 hours. Great support from a company you can trust. As with iDefrag I always notice a significant improvement after running a defrag. I have VM's for Ubuntu 11.04, Fedora 15, Win XP and Lion and VMO made a visible difference to all of them.

Demo SW indicated, that my XP drive could be optimized after purchase. Well, in a misguided moment I went to purchase this product, did 'optimize' my well functioning XP/VM drive... OK, now its dead... RIP... Did a restore from my last Snapshot, lost about 2-3 days of work and another 5 minutes to kill off the VMOptimizer from my system.... Oh, forgot to mention, that the backup copy of my original drive (which VMOptimizer left in my Wastebasket as backup) is also not recognized by VMware as valid file anymore..... As I said, a misguided moment, I should have known better, the blame is mainly on me.....

I would be interested to hear if this really makes much of a difference. I have not tried this product but I have tried the two other products offered by the same company and both deserve outstanding marks, hopefully VMOptimizer can be as useful as iDefrag and iPartition. Apparently VMO uses some of iDefrag's technology.
