VMWARE Server Software

I do realize that this software is older but it's already installed and all I have to use currently.

i built a MS Server 08 VM and I plugged in my external hard drive into the physical machine and the VM doesn't see it. I need to restore another system backup and its on this external hard drive. I tried to use Power ISO to create an ISO image and mount it but it's too large. 90GB.

Any ideas??

VMware won't see the external USB device.  You will need to get the files on the local drive somehow first.

Would that be external "USB" harddisk? Sir!

Yes it is a USB external HD also the VM does not have enough space allocated to accommodate the backup file.
