I recently deleted the hard disk of my private file server by mistake.
Shortly before that I had deleted the last backup (vmdk with 2.2 TiB). The esx crashed in the process. So I currently have a vmdk and a vmdk-flat on which I still have a backup of all data. The backup vmdk was partially deleted. About 600 GB were unlinked by VMware but probably not completely overwritten. According to Diskinternals vmfs recovery the backup seems to be still completely present.
Unfortunately I have neither a license nor enough money to buy a license.
Does anyone have any ideas about how to recover the 600gib data or maybe a Diskinternals VMFS recovery license?
Ps: I stopped all r/w operations!
