Error EC8F1F48: The 'VMware VMDK' conversion process could not be completed.

of the following reasons:
- Destination path does not exist.
- Insufficient disk space.
- Invalid credential or permissions on destination path.
NOTE: Backup Exec System Recovery (BESR) 2010 uses VMware VDDK 1.1, which has official support for Windows XP, 2003 and Vista.
Symantec System Recovery (SSR), formerly Backup Exec System Recovery, uses VMWare VDDK 1.2, which adds support for Windows 7 and 2008, as well as those operating systems supported in BESR.
VMware advises that customers may experience technical issues where BESR is used during VMWare conversions on Windows 7 and 2008, as these platforms are not officially supported. Errors include but may not be limited to those mentioned above. Symantec recommends using SSR when converting using Windows 7 and 2008 operating systems.
