Can I mount a VMFS formatted HDD from Windows or Linux
Posted on 2011-02-26
I have a VMFS (ESX 3.5) formatted SATA hard drive that I have 2 VMs on. I would like to be able to retrieve the data off it from Windows or Linux. Is there anyway I can mount the drive and copy the data off? I have not tried from Linux yet, however in Windows 7 it shows up but is not accessible. I use Ext2 Volume Manager to read/write EXT3 partitions from my Windows but it shows this disk as RAW.
My hope is that there is some Linux package or Live CD that will let me mount this VMFS volume and pull the data off.
