VMDK Data Recovery

As VMWare specialists, we have the experience and technology to treat all VMDK data loss scenarios.

Virtual Machine Disks (VMDKs) are disk images closely associated with VMware workstations, servers and storage devices. However, many non-VMware systems use the VMDK format, and thousands of businesses depend on VMDK technology for everyday tasks.

While disc images on RAID systems are fairly well insulated from common read/write issues, VMDK files can become damaged due to sudden hardware and software failures. Bad sectors, data corruption and header issues can prevent users from accessing the images and reading data, sometimes causing system downtime.

At Secure Data Recovery Services, our recovery experts handle hundreds of virtual machine disks every year. We offer high recovery success rates, fast turnaround times and best-in-industry security, and our specialists can help you restore any damaged VMDK to a working condition.

Treating Damaged and Corrupt VMDK Files

In order to safely repair VMDK images, data recovery engineers need specialized tools and years of hands-on experience. Dozens of factors can affect the recovery process, and no two failure scenarios are exactly the same.

Some of the most common causes of data loss on VMDK images include:

  • Corrupt Header Information
  • Accidental File Deletion or Other User Error
  • Hard Drive Failures and Other Media Issues
  • Configuration Issues

Secure Data Recovery Services' engineers carefully assess failure symptoms in order to create an effective recovery plan for each case. We treat common issues like header corruption with proprietary utilities, returning all data in a matter of days.

Before performing logical data recovery procedures, we create safe copies of VMDK files. This safeguards your data and allows for high recovery success rates. We also have the experience and equipment to recover data from damaged hard drives and RAID systems of all sizes. Secure Data Recovery Services was the first data recovery provider with a certified Class 10 ISO 4 Cleanroom, and we perform hundreds of hard drive and RAID repair procedures each year.

We offer several service options for our clients including a 24/7/365 service and remote recovery for corrupt VMDK files. Every case benefits from our no recovery, no charge guarantee: if we cannot recover your data, we never process a service charge.

What to Do When a VMDK Device Fails

Corrupt VMDK files need prompt attention from a certified data recovery expert. Unfortunately, commercial data recovery tools do not offer reliable results when used with virtual systems, and some utilities can cause additional issues.

If you cannot load a VMDK, turn off your physical media if possible. Never attempt physical or logical recovery, especially if you have a single copy of your virtual machine. Contact Secure Data Recovery Services' virtualization experts to set up a media evaluation.

Our evaluation services are the fastest and most reliable way to assess data recovery costs. We can provide a price quote, turnaround estimate and other important case information to help you make an appropriate plan for your virtual machines. Secure Data Recovery Services is one of the few data recovery providers with certified 24/7/365 emergency data recovery services for virtual machines, and with advanced security credentials and state-of-the-art technology, we deliver consistent results for our VMDK data recovery clients.
