vmdk on external drive disconnected while running macOS, and the vmdk corrupted.

Anyone have a fix for this? It seems like the disk is not repairable once this happens. It happens twice and I did reinstall of the OS twice. Recovery mode can’t fix this issue either, Catalina especially since I can’t really enter recovery mode.

  1. Hard to say, it depends on the exact damage to the vmdk. You would probably need the help of one of the vmdk repair specialists over at vmtn. But they can only help you down there if you are running on a Mac which you haven’t mentioned, nor which VMware product you are using.

    With a fragile setup like this I always explicitly warn a user how important it is to keep up-to-date backups.
