    Hello,

    I've been using Cronosync to backup my Windows .pvm file to an external hard drive. My Windows 7 virtual machine somehow became corrupted and will not boot up, so I'd like to use my backup to restore it. However, when I was expecting to see the .pvm file on my external hard drive, it wasn't there. Instead, it looks like it copied the entire contents of the .pvm file instead of the .pvm file itself. How can I convert the contents back to a .pvm file?

    I'm attaching a screenshot of my backup so you can see what I mean. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Tommy

    Do you have a .hdd file in your vm files list? I cannot find it in your screenshot.

    Yes, I do. If you look in the screenshot, you'll notice the file named Windows 7-0.hdd
