Accessing the contents of a VHD on another computer
Posted on 2013-01-26
Have a VHD that was running Windows 2008, but cannot login because of a probable virus attack. Trying to find a way to recover some of the data and do not want to start the VM on the server for fear of the virus. Was hoping to dump the contents to a physical drive like a USB drive, but doesn't appear that is possible?
Have another Hyper-V server that I can try to copy the VHD to and try to work with it that way. Should I attempt an export or can I just copy the VHD file? Both are Dell PE R710 server, are there considerations besides similar hardware?
