Is delta syncing possible?

Hi, I'm new to Starwind V2V Converter, but I've used VMware Converter lots of times. VMware Converter has a feature where after performing the initial full sync of the source VM or physical server to the target vSphere environment, I can perform as many incremental/delta syncs as I want until it comes time to do the final sync/cuttover. Each incremental/delta sync doesn't take nearly as long to complete as the initial full sync. Can Starwind V2V Converter also do this?

Regards,
George.

Hi George,

Unfortunately, StarWind cannot create deltas while converting a VM. StarWind V2V Converter can convert a VM only if it is powered off.
