There's also some tools (ntfsclone for one ntfs-aware tool) or g4u for
a more centralized whole-disk-image approach that might do the same.

also you might be able to extract the Raw VMDK's data on your ESX host
using VMWare cli utils and compress/scp that. I know this works with
the normal VMWare server and would assume ESX also has some utility to
ease that.

good luck :)
