I have a big problem. After a serious harddisk crash i lost all data. I have filebackup of all data except the mailfile. I have a backup of the directory where the vmdk and related files are stored. but the last vmdk backup has somehow gotten corrupted. Any thoughts to how i can get data back from the corrupted vmdk? I have tried:
- Mounted the file in Workstation 7 - so i can acces it in the host os.
- Mounted the file in vdk32.exe - so i can acces it in the host os.
- Mounted it in another workstation 7 virtual pc as a second harddisk and tried to browse it in a virtual pc (windows 2008 servers).
- Used R-studio and some other harddsik recovery programs to scan the disk in the above but with the same results:
It seems that the 80gig vmdk file just contains 10 gb of data - it should contain over 60gb of data. Rstudio and scanned programs show that the harddisk (vmdk-file) contains the first 10% as data end the rest is blank).
When i browse the vmdkfile via hostpc it contains files but only about 10 gb.
The filecopy was done manually when vmware was shutdown and it completed ok. I took a test and booted the backupvmdk after copying it, and it booted ok - i could log on the virtual server.
Any tools or tips to fix this vmdk-file? I have tried vmware converter as well...
