Convert .rdr file to vhd/vhdx

Does anyone know how to convert the .rdr image file into a .vhd or .vhdx? That would make this software and the backups much more useful.

You can't convert it directly, but you can do the following trick:
1. Create a vhd/vhdx disk of the same size and attach it to the system.
2. "Restore" the rdr file to the attached vhd/vhdx disk.
Tested and proved success.
