These tips will help you avoid loss of time and grief in losing a virtual machine or critical data you have on your partitions. They will make your job easier in a day to day work.

Tip #1

Do not use fdisk or a similar utility to create partition tables, even if it is in the guest operating system on remote VMware ESX servers while you are in the virtual machine on the console.
