    Image tool does not seem to be able to resize Parallels 3.0 images. I tried to run it on a 3.0 image and increase the size of the drive and it won't work. I then used Image Tool on my backed-up version 2.5 image and was able to resize the image successfully. Any ideas on what is causing this?

    This is the error message I get "The name of the hard disk file /users/*****/disk1.hdd is not valid as it refers to the existing folder object. Please specify another name for the image file."

    Renaming the file does not fix the problem.

    I don't even have ImageTool installed anymore - it appears when I installed 3.0 it got rid of it. Is ImageTool gone as of 3.0?

    Same problem here!
    Wanted to defrag today with Image Tool, but I get the "invalid name" message with all disk images.
    I remember it worked fine with prior version.

    uhm, ok.
    I just read that 3.0 has no Image Tools application.
    The one in my Parallels folder is the old 2.5 one.

    Should have better been deinstalled to avoid mistakes.

    Any official word from Parallels??? According to the 3.0 Release Notes:

    "Legacy Image Tool removed from installation package"

    Okay... "Legacy" tool... is there a new tool to support this capability? (growing disk images) Or is this a feature that was removed?
