Recover from VHD File - VM - Hyper-V
Posted on 2014-04-28
Here is the scenario:
VM had driver issues
restored back to older version via previous snapshot
VM working and put required content back into server
After doing the above, we realised that there was a folder that we needed, now that the restore has happened via snapshot we cannot retrieve these files.
I have noticed that when I open the VHD file there is a folder called [DELETED] I was getting really happy thinking the files were in here but it was not the case. The file was opened using 7zip. This folder is not visable when attaching it.
I have another file with the extension .AVHD which is currently in use (which I believe is the differential file that looks at the parent VHD file). When I try to open the file via 7zip there is another file within called the .mbr file. I cannot seem to open this file and view its contents.
Do you guys suggest what can be done to retrieve the content that would have been within: C:\Program Files (x86)\
Any help will be appreciated.
