-Flat file deleted

Postby VincentVegas » Sat Jan 15, 2011 4:48 pm

Hy all,

during a normal move between two datastores i lost a complete Flat File.

Is there any chance to recover it? I am using ESXi 4.1

Thank You

if you can't find the flat.vmdk with ls -alh on the console you have only a small chance to recover the vmdk.
To do so use a Knoppix CD with photorec

or if that does not work attach the VMFS volume to a Windows host and scan with Ontrack Easy Recovery and UFS-explorer

Chances are bad - if the flat.vmdk contained important data contact VMware support - or if they can't help Ontrack

Sorry for bad news
