Hello Experts,
Is there a way to mount a VMDK file created on a non-raid SATA disk on my ESXI server if I remove it from the ESXI server completly and using a SATA to USB convertor cable, connect it to a seperate workstation running XP?

I am wondering as I am testing disaster recovery scenerios. Thanks!
