HyperV vhd error - How to retrieve the lost data RRS feed

  • Question

  • I ran into a problem. I am hoping some can guide me in the right direction. I have a lab environment running hyperV 2012 nodes. One of the hyperv 2012 node with das crashed and couple of the vms on it are in critical state. It is a lab environment so its not causing any major disruption, but one the vm was a web server which has a sql db that i need to retrieve.

    What happened is I tried to reattach the vms vhdx file to a a new machine and somehow an older snapshot got merged with the most recent vhdx. I was able to stat the vm but it has older data from the snapshot, which is not helpful.

    Is there anyway or tool to retrieve the files from the original vhdx,
    Files and folders: wwwroot folder and sql db.

    I would really appreciate any help.
