  • Hello,

    disk2vhd converts the disk to the same size as your operating system's disk.

    You do not face data loss, I have used the tool several times and never had a problem.

    You can run the tool without fear, you don't even need to pause any services on your server, just remember to point the destination of the virtual disks to a storage with enough space.

    Kind regards,
