A folder was deleted on a Windows Server 2012 Virtual Machine that didn't have any backups.
Deduplication was running on this server. When we ran typical recovery tools (such as easeUS and recuva) we couldn't find the files.
The vmdk that this disk is on is Thin Provisioned.
Is there a way of extracting the deleted data directly from the vmdk.
We are sending to a recovery shop for help, but I wanted to check here first.
