Convert vmdk to raw / dd

Found a vmdk file / image of a virtual server and want to investigate it? Most forensic tools work with image files (such as DD output or raw) and a small tool can help you to convert it:

Install qemu:

apt-get install qemu

qemu-img convert -p -O raw source.vmdk destination.raw
