VMware File Recovery
This software enables users to recover deleted files from VMware datastore in a batch. Users can directly browse the folder path of the virtual machine. It can also help you to search multiple virtual machines in the system and scan all of them at one time. The VMware Recovery Tool can recover entire data available in a VMDK file.
Search & Scan Option
In order to retrieve damaged Virtual machine data then you will need to load it first. If you are unable to find the virtual machine’s storage location then you can also opt for the search option. Users can locate VM in two ways:
Preview VMware Data
Once the VMDK file gets scanned and loaded into the VMDK File Recovery tool, it will provide a list of all the items present in the file. Each file can be previewed along with its attributes such as Name, Created date, Modified date and size in bytes. It only generates preview of text file like .xml, .dir, .log, etc. and images like .jpg, .png, etc.
Search Files using Advance Option
The application enables the users to search for a specific file within the VMware data file using the file extension. Users can also apply filters such as file creation date, modified date and last accessed date. Using VMware Recovery Tool, users can also set a date range to filter the files residing in the specified date range.
Retrieve & Export Restored Data
After performing VMDK flat file recovery, the software offers users to recover and save data from the file. The file can be saved in two ways:
Export Selected File
The VMDK File Repair Software enables users to save VMware data on selective basis. If a user wants to save only a specific folder from entire data then it can done using the check/uncheck option available in the application.
Maintain Folder Structure
After performing VMDK flat file recovery, the data within the VMDK files remains in a proper and arranged structure. The application assures that no change will be done in the folder structure and data will be retained properly as well.
Generated Export Report
Once, the VMware data recovery gets completed, the tool generates an export report of the process. It consists of VM number, source folder and destination folder. Also, the report is saved in CSV format so that it can be used for future reference.
Demo Limitations –
The trial version of VMware Recovery Software only generates a preview of the recovered file.
I wanted to recover deleted files from VMware datastore and I was looking for a utility to do the same. When I found this tool, I initially used the trial version of this VMware Data Recovery software just to be sure. After using its trial version, I purchased the full version of it.

Recently lost some important data from my VMDK files. It included some confidential data and credentials. After doing some research work, I found this VMDK Recovery tool which helped to recover deleted files from VMware datastore that too with ease. I seriously want to thank the developers.
