A “VMDK” file (.vmdk) is a virtual machine disk image file created by VMware. It stores all contents of a virtual disk. If you have VMware on your computer and you just created a virtual machine but you don’t know how to add an existing VMDK file from your previous virtual machine, here’s how to do it.

On your computer, start your VMware software then open your virtual machine but don’t turn it on. Make sure the virtual machine is turned off. Go to “VM” then “Settings”. Next, go to “Hardware” tab then click “Add” to initiate the “Add Hardware” wizard. Next, select “Hard Disk” then click “Next”. In “Select a Disk” window, select “Use an existing virtual disk” then click “Next”.

In “Select an Existing Disk” window, browse to the location of your VMDK file and select it then click “OK”. And that’s it.
