I have my masters on VMware. I would like to back it up somehow. My idea was to pack it (7z, WinZip, WinRar)somehow and then record on blu-ray cd. Is it possible? When I'm packing vmware files and then when I'm unpacking them, vmware machine won't work. Very often I even have an issue with unpacking it. Windows says that files are corrupted. My vmware machine files are 2 GB size. (2nd disc is in pieces) I was also trying to record virtual machine without packing it but it was the same. I was unable to move all vmfiles from blu-ray disc to hard drive. Please help. I don't want to store my vmware machine for eternity and also I don't wan to delete it.
(I'm talking about VMWare player and files which are used to run/host some system in virtual environment.)
