by robertosburn6 In reply to How to recover data from ...

You can either do it manually or you can use paid VMware recovery software. First, you should try doing it manually. There could be a few reasons for corrupt VMDK file like malicious storage of files, improper installation of antivirus, not a legit transfer of files between networks or by chance disconnecting storage device while the virtual drive was being created.
For the manual method:
1 Connect the VHD file to the parent partition followed by chkdsk to repair it.
2 By using Hyper-V check connection, check its proper connection.
3 Now connect the VHD file to the IDE controller.
4 Tap inspect button.
5 Now merge any VHD and AVHD files.
6 You need to check it that it must get opened by Windows 7, server 2008.
7 Now you can download the VHD tool, including a repair option.
