We run out of space in 2 disks of a virtual machine (Windows Server 2008) that we have on a ESXI 4.1.
We looked in the VMWare Database for instructions on how to resize the vmdk files. We followed to the letter (removing the snapshots, applying the -X resize command) and it completed correctly. We did this with both disks (they were data disks, no OS disks).
After booting the VM, we found that the disks were empty!
We don't have an entire backup of the data (yeah, we know) and we tried to install programs to look for the data in the VM but found nothing.
Does anyone know if there is a way to recover this??
