Designed and developed by Macrium Software, ImgToVHD is a system utility that is intended to help users convert their Macrium based backups, which are image files, to VHD files. Available as a free to use software application, you can implement this tool in various Windows platforms such as Windows 2003, 2008, 7, XP, Vista, and Server versions. Once the image files are converted to VHD files, it can then be stored as a virtual machine component such as a Virtual PC or HyperV, or as a Virtual Box like VMWare or Oracle/Sun. In other words, this utility helps to recreate a backup system into a virtual machine. This will help you regain access to a machine that has failed due to hardware failure.
