I am currently using the last build/version of VMware Workstation 10 on a my Windows 8.1 Professional HP computer.   I have 2 virtual machines that are very important to me and wanted to know the best way to automate a backup based on scheduled (incremental and full backups), able to replicate and/or transport easily.   Is there 3rd party software that can do all this?   Any thoughts???

Thanks

I need the entire process to be automated.   The only time it will it can be manual is when replicating perhaps to another host or for DR.
