VMOptimizer 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).

What’s new in version 1.0.7

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.
