Is there a way to sync changes made in the VM back to the physical machine? The VM was converted through VMWare's converter. I would like to sometimes sync to and fro changes made on the VM and on the physical machine, is there a way to do so in VMware?

You don't want conversion, you want... I don't quite know, but it's not P2V conversion. – womble Jul 30 '11 at 5:22

You might take a look at products like PlateSpin (now owned by Novell).
