kali linux virtualbox raw image after format

Mon Oct 01, 2018 6:36 pm

Greetings,

I have a bad case right now. A customer send me a raw file has been using in a kali linux virtulbox. It has been formatted and customer need its data back.
My customer sent this file to another data recovery expert and they sent them back files inside disk.
As I see customer need is, this virtual disk must be in old condition. Right now I am using R-Tools but seems it can only find files. Are there any way?
I tried to convert it to anther file format to reach it by PC 3000 DE but I also failed.

My Best Regards,
Ali Cem Topcu

But that RAW file is what? The virtual box drive file of the OS? Or you have a full RAW file of the kali linux and the virtual box?
