I copied some servers/workstations (VHD files) from a Hyper V environment and I wanted to run these machines on either Virtual box or Vmplayer.  Can I do this and how?

I wanted to ask a quick question:

I wanted to use this and virtualize my environment from a physicall to a virtual.  My only concern is if I have Server 1 with 80 gigs used out of 500 gigs, how much space I'm I going to need to have avaible if I have the same setup for 3 other servers witht the same space characteristics?  I have a 1 TB of external hard drive space.

I would virtualise, and create a 100GB virtual disk, it's always very easy to expand a disk, but difficult to shrink, so under size your environment.

This can be done, when P2Ving, you can shinrk the destination disk size.
