virtual server corrupted d drive

We've been running hyper V and our virtual file server had an unusual crash. I lost connection to my shared folders and when I logged into the server and tried to open the d drive I got the error message this folder is corrupt and unreadable run checkdisk to check for disk consistancy. I rebooted the server and let checkdisk run. after the server came up there was no D drive. I went into disk management and assigned d back to the partition, but there was no files on the d drive after I opened it. I bought some software called total recall data recovery and ran a scan overnight, it looks like it found the files, but they do not have the original names. they are named file1.doc on up to a few thousand. Does anyone know how this crash could have happened? Does anyone know how I can find out the original name of the file or where they were located in the file structure? If someone knows of a different software package that would do better for the recovery that would be great also.

You can try R-Studio.

I left them a message, have you used it? did it give you the original names or folder structure?

I've used it with fairly good success. It gave the original file names and structures.

I've used File Scavenger with considerable success but I don't think any of these products will entirely resolve your issue.
Of course it's worth a try but it's time to look at your backups.
It's likely also a great oportunity to look at a more robust solution than Hyper-v.
