On my Windows system I was using VMware disk mount appeaser utility to mount a VMware virtual disk (.vmdk file). In past I was able to read, write and modify disk. But now I am facing a problem with it. Actually I mounted the virtual disk with snapshots. Unfortunately I make changes in snapshot and now my disk is lost. I am searching for the way to get it back. Can I get back my disk? If you know this then tell me how to do.
Issue with vmware disk mount appassure
Hello Alex Joshuaa,
This feels like the same situation as having a disk full of files then suddenly died. Try to create a new VM and use an existing virtual disk. Try to boot the VM and if you only have the vmdk file then create a virtual disk of exact size. Use the vmdk file and manually modify it to match the existing vmdk file and boot your VM again. This method is risky and only a few people did it so do it at your own risk.
Hope this helps.
