Starting VHD with AVHD, BIN, VSV files from hyper-v files
Posted on 2015-01-05
I have a Hyper-v VM files which I recovered from failed RAID 1.
It seems like the recovery was ok, but I can't start the VM on another machine.
The VM folder has following files;
What I did was, I merged srv1.vhd and srv1-xxxxxxxx-x-x-x-x-x-xxxxxxx.avhd (after renaming .avhd to .vhd), then attached the merged vhd file in Disk management, then ran chkdsk to repair. After finishing chkdsk, I could see all my files.
Now, I tried to create a virtual machine using this merged vhd file, but no luck.
It says 'The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable'.
Is it because I ignored bin and vsv files or simply the vhd files are corrupted?
