StarWind V2V Converter is a StarWind proprietary tool that can be leveraged for virtual-to-virtual (V2V) use cases as well as physical-to-virtual (P2V) use cases. The tool supports all major VM formats: VHD/VHDX, VMDK, QCOW2, and StarWind native IMG. Both the source and target VM copies exist simultaneously because the conversion procedure is more like a cloning process than a replacement. As a convenient side effect, StarWind V2V Converter basically creates a backup copy of the VMs, making the process even safer.

When converting the VM to VHDX format, StarWind V2V Converter enables the activation of Windows Repair Mode. This way the virtual machine will automatically adapt to the given hardware environment and negate any compatibility problems.
