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.

Then the third party solution will be your safest bet for the moment ...

I will like to see others to compare -- If you know of any others, that would be perfect.
