Restore VHDX files from lost Raid5.

Mon Nov 14, 2016 2:03 pm

Hi guys.

A little issue has issue has developed at home.

It was a Raid 5 volume of 4x3TB WD Red SATA disks running on a HP P41- HBA with 512BBWC.

The controller died and dropped all the disks from the array. The issue is that this array held VHDX (VM's and storage drives) files which is making recovery an issue as RAW scans show the single files, not the VHDX. (It shows the VHDX as well, but not in a recoverable state)

ReClaiMe RAID recovery has found the array details.

</blockmap>

but the trial of any software I use (I'm more than willing to pay, as long as I can get stuff back - I'm not that flush that I can chuck cash at something on a hope) can preview some files but comically, these files are stored on the VM OS VHDX files, not the storage ones. :(

Has anyone tried to recover VHDX files that could offer assistance? Remote access can be given if required.

If you need more info, please ask, I'm new at this.

Hit me up on Skype: palmer_jared

I can probably take a quick remote look at it and see if I can figure out the settings from the metadata on the drives.

I'll add you when I get in from work Jared, in around an hour.

The time zones might make it difficult but I'm flexible most days and the server is up 24/7.
Thanks!

Jared, you're a life saver!.

Two of the three VHDX files recovered just fine, the first hasn't but the agent crashed half way through (Various.vhdx) so I'm guessing it didn't restart correctly?)

I've sent you over some money for your time last night as promised and I can't thank you enough.

Thank you!

Happy to pay it as well!

The data is invaluable (wedding pics, dead family, friends, pets) and other such random stuff that gathers over time.
