VMFS Recovery VMDK recovery tool features

Hereunder are the best notable features of the DiskInternals VMFS Recovery VMDK Recovery Tool for Windows OS.

Smooth Recovery Process

DiskInternals VMFS Recovery VMDK Recovery Tool comes with a built-in Recovery Wizard that guides you every step of the way. The Recovery Wizard makes the entire recovery process smooth and seamless, even when the user is not a PRO.

Designed To Clearly Read VMware VMFS File System

This software is practically designed to read and recover files from VMware’s VMFS file system, and that makes it the perfect tool for recovering data and files for your virtual machines hosted on VMware’s virtual platforms – vSphere or ESXi.

Recovers Information From Corrupted Or Healthy VMFS-formatted drives

One impressive function of DiskInternals VMFS Recovery VMDK Recovery Tool is its ability to read and access corrupted VMFS-formatted drives. This means that, even if the virtual drive isn’t mounting, you can recover your files.

Recovers VMDK Images on VMware vSphere, ESXi/ESX Servers

VMFS Recovery can read and access VMFS partitions created on vSphere and ESX/ESXi servers. It supports VMFS3, VMFS5, and VMFS6 and can recover files/partitions up to 64 TB in size while also supporting Unicode file names in VMFS5 and VMFS6 and multi-level folders.

Recovers VMFS Drives Stored On Corrupted And Inaccessible Hard Drives

One of the main reasons people choose DiskInternals VMFS Recovery is due to its high success rate, even in recovering files from damaged drives. To engage the full capacity of the program, use Full Recovery mode to scan the corrupted disk; this scanning mode automatically examines the current state of VMware VMFS datastores, disks, volumes, RAID (if used), and reads VMDK images as well as VMFS structures (where possible).

Automated Recovery Includes Step-By-Step Recovery Wizard

A built-in Recovery Wizard is available to help you through every step you need to take to recover your VMDK files; the Recovery Wizard is very intuitive and easy to understand. Also, there are two recovery modes to choose from:

  • Fast Recovery Mode: It is advisable to try this mode first, as it’d save you so much time while recovering virtually all files lost from the selected disk.
  • Full Recovery Mode: This mode launches a deeper scan to repair the bad sectors and fix corrupted data stores on the selected disks, then recovers every file that has been lost on the selected disk.

Virtual Drives Can Be Mounted As Local Disks Accessible By Windows Explorer

With DiskInternals VMFS Recovery, you can mount virtual drives as local (physical) drives and access them from Windows File Explorer to preview all your files in a comfortable manner.

Recovers Remotely In Online Mode (No Shutdown Is Required)

Another good feature of DiskInternals VMFS Recovery is that it can seamlessly launch data recovery on remote servers. The Recovery Wizard lets you follow a smooth path to complete your data recovery.

Recovers VMDK Images Stored On Disks Formatted by VMware ESX/ESXi Server

This data recovery program can recover VDMK image files from already formatted disks with up to 90% probability.

Recovered Files and Folders are Exported to Local or Remote Locations (Including FTP)

When the scan is complete, and you confirm that you have found the files you seek, you can choose to recover them to a local disk or remote storage location via FTP – your choice.

Windows Restrictions Are Bypassed In The Recovery Process
