I am using ESXi, free version. I have created a VM and installed solaris, and installed some apps. I am using vmware vsphere(installed on my laptop) client to connect.
To make a safe copy of my VM, I am going to Datastore and exporting all the files to my laptop hard disk.
My question is I would be able to restore my files if necessary by importing them back to the same data store or different data store on ESXi.? Is this right.
Is there any other way of doing it.
