Disk recovery completed successfully, but the VHD is nowhere to be found. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Running DPM 2010, performed a disk recovery (backup using child partition) that completed successfully, but in the destination folder it only created a AVHD file but no VHD file.  The AVHD file is about 38GB, though in DPM it is showing the amount of data that was transferred was 142GB.

  • Hi,

    The files may be hidden or may have special permissions, from an administrative command prompt, run: 

       DIR /A /S <restore_folder>

    If you still cannot find them, do another restore and open resource monitor on the protected server while the restore is in progress and look at the DPMRA service disk I/O and watch the files as they are written to the disk.
