I moved a virtual machine(debian linux wheezy) from digitalocean vps to my own vmware virtual machine successfully.There are a several steps which you have to follow.
1.Create and configure a virtual machine in vmware, boot a live cd(for example Ubuntu 12.04).
2.Configure network, check the internet connection,create a partition with fdisk or other disk utility.
3.Make sure dump utility is installed on both sides and ssh-server is started and allowed on the source side.
4.mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda1;mount /dev/sda1 /mnt;cd /mnt;
ssh 126.96.36.199 "dump -0uan -f - /" | restore -r -f -
Here, 188.8.131.52 is your digital’s ocean virtual machine ip address.
It will take a time, depends on internet connection speed.
6.Use blkid to view disks uuid , change your disk UUID in /mnt/etc/fstab
/dev/sda1: UUID="9068c98b-e8fa-4730-b746-0b719c772f57" TYPE="ext4"
7.Change the ip address in /mnt/etc/network/interfaces
mount -o bind /dev /mnt/dev
mount -t proc /proc /mnt/proc
mount -o bind /sys /mnt/sys
apt-get install grub-pc grub2
shutdown -h now
9.Right click on the virtual machine and select Upgrade Virtual hardware.
10.Power on virtual machine.
