Hi! VMDK file system corruption can be a nasty problem, but there are solutions for data recovery. One of the most effective methods is to use DiskInternals VMFS Recovery software. This is a powerful tool specifically designed to recover data from VMware file systems. I would recommend starting by downloading this program and performing a scan of your corrupted VMDK to find lost files and corrupted vmdk repair. Also remember to backup your data regularly to avoid similar problems in the future.

In addition, when working with DiskInternals VMFS Recovery, it is important to remember that the faster you start the recovery process, the higher the probability of a successful result. It is also recommended to save the recovered data on another medium to avoid corrupting and overwriting it. I hope these tips will help you to solve the problem of recovering corrupt VMDK.
