I remember with vSphere 4.x, when running the vConverter Plug-In fom the vSphere client, you had the option to do an estimated conversion time.  I believe you could even schedule it.  Is that something that can still be done with vConverter stand-alone?  If so, I cannot figure out where it's located.

Unfortuantely - NOT. It has been removed.

Standalone is the only product now, with no vCenter Server plugin or integration.

Right, thanks for the quick response!  So the standalone doesn't do estimated time?

Yes, it does Estimated Time....(it's quite accurate as well!), but only after you submit the job!

I guess what I mean is an estimated time without actually converting the device.  :)
