Recover data from VMware snapshot file
Posted on 2013-08-28
Question i think i know the answer to my question but want to see any knows a way.
What i have is a large 29GB snapshot file of a VM that is was only 30GB base.
The base VMDK file was accidentally deleted and no backups exist.
It is a windows 7 VDI desktop,
We would like to try to recover a little bit of data "desktop/Favorites/...." Is there any way to pull data from the snapshot file? It has bee around for months and months and months so i would think that it should contain all the newest data that was saved to the desktop and favorites?
If it at all matters it is Windows 7 / ESXI 5.1
