Are you ready? Let's read!
Fix 1: Discard the VM's Saved State
If you receive a message that the VM session was closed, you can retrieve the saved state of the virtual machine and then load your VM as normal.
Right-click your virtual machine and select the "Discard Saved State" option.
After that, try to start the virtual machine; no errors or interference should appear. If this is not the case, and all you can see is the message “the VM session was closed before any attempt to power it on” on the screen, then try the following fix.
Fix 2: Uninstall and Reinstall VirtualBox
You can also uninstall VirtualBox and then reinstall it. This method is especially helpful if the problem appeared after a Windows update.
In the Control Panel, find and remove VirtualBox, the virtual machines will remain intact.
Next, restart your computer and load the latest version of VirtualBox. Once the download is complete, right-click the downloaded file and select "Run as administrator". Detailed instructions will appear on the screen to install VirtualBox, follow them and after installation restart your computer.
Now reopen VirtualBox Manager and start the virtual machine.
Next, proceed to install the Guest Additions and Extension Pack if you wish.
Protect your data!
When working with cloud platforms, you need to take care of the safety of virtual machine information. Use DiskInternals VMFS Recovery™ for this purpose. It is by far the most famous professional VMDK file recovery tool (both .vmdk files and -flat.vmdk files).
Here are the key features that differentiate VMFS Recovery™ from other software:
- Supports virtual machines including VMware, VirtualBox, Virtual PC and ProDiscover disk images, and also supports vSphere 6 and ESX / ESXi Server.
- Works with Windows 7 and above (however, it is still recommended to use Windows 10).
- The size of the software is 65 MB, which is not a lot, but you must have enough free space on your hard drive to recover data.
- The Recovery Wizard will help you to automatically recover data in a short period of time without any additional professional skills.
- You can mount virtual disks as local disks available in Windows Explorer for easy viewing of data.
- Support for file names and multi-level Unicode folders.
Use these detailed step-by-step instructions to recover a corrupted VMDK file with DiskInternals VMFS Recovery™.
Install VMFS Recovery™. Start recovery by activating the Recovery Wizard, or do everything manually.
First, if necessary, establish an SSH connection, and then you will be prompted to open your local drive (this could be SSH).
Then the scan of the selected disk will start, which may take some time; after completing this step, locate the required .vmdk files that you want to mount.
Then open the mounted .vmdk file by double-clicking the left mouse button and browse the available files to check their integrity.
At any time on the DiskInternals website, buy a license and complete the export of data to an alternative data source.
