I have a ntfs partition, GPT, of 5.6 TB containing only 200 GB of data, that I need to fit onto a 1 TB partition (of a vmware ESXi guest).
Vmware converter does not support GPT.
Acronis disk director does not support GPT.
As I am not very familiar with the Windows operating system, I would rather not copy over "network shares", ftp or similar - I foresee too many problems with that. (correct me if Im wrong!).
I could dd/parted/gzip the raw partition, but unpacking it to a smaller partition might cause problems. Anyone know if problems like that could be resolved by running CHKDSK or similar?
What wuld you do?
