3. Select VMware Virtual infrastructure Tab under settings and clear the check box "Add restored virtual machines to VirtualCenter or ESX Sserver Inventory"

 

4. Specify the path on a NTFS volume that is local to the selected server for temporary storage of the restore data (C:Temp as mentioned in the above image).
