VMDK Data Recovery

VMDK Recovery software is the best solution for VMDK data recovery. It takes hardly a few minutes, and recovers maximum possible data from corrupt VMDK files in their original form.

Split VMDK Recovery

Don't worry if your VMDK file is split into multiple parts. Software supports both SPARSE and FLAT types. Make sure all the parts of VMDK file are stored in the same folder, and the first part is selected.

Partition support
Partition Table Support

VMDK Recovery tool supports both partition table formats used for hard disk drive partition: MBR aka master boot record and GPT aka GUID partition table. MBR is selected by default, whereas you need to check GPT format box if the partition type of GPT.

Scanning mode
Two Scanning Modes

There are two scanning modes in this software which make scanning process swift and effective. You can select Standard Mode for minor corruption and Advance Mode for severe corruption. If you select advance scanning, you can define custom setting which includes starting and ending sectors before scanning VMDK file.

Add custom Volume
Custom Volume Addition

After a successful scanning process, you'll see a list of available volumes in the disk. If you think any volume is missing from the list, you can add a custom volume to the list.

Raw recovery
RAW Recovery Mode

In order to achieve best results, you can try its RAW Recovery mode. It provides you much better recovery results than any other recovery modes. It supports recovery of image (5 MB), audio (6 MB) and archive (1 GB) formats by default.

Tree preview
Tree-Structure Preview

Once the recovery process is completed, software will show you a tree-structure in which you can check recovered files and folders. You can expand ROOT folder and other subfolders to check recovered data. Also, you can double-click the file to check its properties.

Simplify UI
Easy-to-use Application

Software contains an easy and highly interactive user-interface that requires no prior technical expertise. It works in a self-describing mode, so that any technical or non-technical user can use this software with ease.

Disk support
Disk Support

VMDK aka Virtual Machine disk file is saved into two types: Fixed Disk and Dynamic Disk. This VMDK Recovery software provides an option to select the disk type before VMDK data recovery.

Support Descriptor VMDK

Also, it provides you Descriptor option. If you don't know the split type of VMDK file, you can try this option. This will auto-detect the split type, so that you can perform data recovery with ease.

File sys support
File System Support

All the popular file systems used by Windows, Mac and Linux systems are highly supported by this software. It supports FAT (all variants such as: FAT 16, FAT 32 & FAT 64 aka exFAT) and NTFS of Windows, HFS+ of Mac and EXTX of Linux systems.

Recovery modes
Three Recovery Modes

Also, three recovery modes are available to handle different level of corruption. For example: standard mode for minor corruption, advanced mode for moderate corruption, and deep mode for recovering data in severe corruption. You can select the recovery modes one by one as per the level of corruption.

Enable custom setting
Enable Custom Settings

Also, you can define the custom settings of selected volume, i.e. start sector and end sector, as well as the file system in which you want to treat your volume.

add file signature
New Signatures Addition

If you want to recover more data from the selected volume through RAW Recovery mode, you can add new signatures into a new file or the existing one. Save the file and parse the volume again, you can see the results now.

Search files
Smart Files' Search

The smart Search option allows you to search specific files in the tree-structure in just a single click. You need to enter file names or types (single as well as multiple at a time) in the search bar and click search button. Within a couple of seconds, the file(s) will be searched.

Win support
Extensive Windows Support

Client Reviews
SPARSE and FLAT are two file types used by VMDK aka Virtual Machine Hard Disk file. While creating a VMDK file, you will see an option Allocate all disk space now. If you check this option, the file type which is created is FLAT, and it uses all the allocated disk space. With FLAT file type, you can enhance the performance of your VMware as well as Virtual Machine Hard Disk file. But if you don't check this option Allocate all disk space now, the file type will be SPARSE. With SPARSE file type, you can't allocate the space. The virtual disk starts small and grows as you add data to it
VMDK descriptor is just like a log file for VMDK file if you split it into multiple parts. If you choose Split virtual disk into multiple files option, a descriptor file will be created in the same folder where the split VMDK file is stored. If you have no idea about the file type your VMDK is saved in, either SPARSE or FLAT, you can check Is Descriptor option. Then instead of selecting the corrupt VMDK file, you need to select the VMDK descriptor file. In general, the file size of VMDK descriptor is in few KBs.
RAW recovery mode should be preferred when corruption level is severe and you want to perform maximum possible data from corrupt VMDK file. The algorithm of RAW recovery is quite different than other recovery modes, i.e. standard, advanced and deep. To use RAW recovery mode, just select the volume in the list and select RAW in Treat file system as option. After that, you can parse the selected volume to recover your data from it. The default file types which are supported are: image files (JPG/JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP, etc.) or up to 5 MB, archive files (ZIP, RAR, TAR, etc.) of up to 1 GB and audio files of up to 6 MB. If you want to add new signatures to new or existing file, you can do by simply clicking the Gear button shown next to Add new signatures in new/existing file. After that you need to define the file settings you want to add into a new file, and then you can save this new file. Now upload this new file in RAW recover mode and parse the selected volume one more time.
There is a feature in this software which enables you add a custom volume in the list. Once the selected VMDK file is scanned, the available volumes will be shown in the list. If you think there's still something left, you can add a custom volume in the list and define the custom settings. The custom settings include start sector and end sector. Also, you need to define the file system format in which you want to treat your new custom volume, such as: FAT, FAT16, FAT32, FAT64 (exFAT), NTFS, HFS+ and EXTX.
This VMDK Recovery software is capable enough to support corrupt VMDK files which are split into multiple parts. During the creation of VMDK file on VMware, there's an option for splitting the VMDK file into multiple parts. If you select it, the VMDK file will be split into multiple parts and stored in the same folder. If any of the part is corrupt, it causes inaccessibility in the entire VMDK file. This software smartly supports split VMDK file of both types, SPARSE and FLAT. Make sure all the parts of split VMDK file are stored in the same folder, and choose the first part of the VMDK file. After that, software will auto-detect the rest part of the files and perform complete recovery with ease.
