And OK it doesn’t offer its core features like CBT, or Instant Recovery feature but if you want just a bare basic backup a VM and restore it if there is a failure then why wouldn’t you? For home lab guys that don’t have a VCP or vExpert status this is perfect. If you want to find out the differences between the free version and full fat version CLICK HERE.
