Retrieving Data from VHD File (Virtual Machine Harddrive)
I had Gentoo installed on a Microsoft Windows Hyper-V virtual machine. The system shutdown properly but the RAID array on the drive it was on failed. We had a backup that was poorly configured and as such we didnít back up all of the data we needed.
Therefore, after getting the RAID array back to a degraded state I was able to get the VHD files (virtual machine harddrives) off of the RAID array but the tools I would use to mount them do not work as they say the file could be corrupted. I cannot use the Windows-based utilities as they only recognize NTFS formatted partitions and as such I cannot recover any files with those tools.
Does anyone know or have experience with recovering or accessing VHD files in Linux?
The ideal scenario would be if I can somehow mount these drives in a Gentoo or other Linux-based OS which I could then try and recover files with. Even if the files donít mount is there a tool that can scan drives mounted in Linux for recoverable files?
Thank you for your time.
