    Corrupt VHD

    I've been away for a couple of weeks getting married and i've come back to one of our virtual machines fallen over. When i try to start it i get an error saying;

    "Failed to open attachment.... <filename> Error:"The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable".

    Is there a way i can repair the AVHD?

    There are a few things you can try.

    1) Restore from a backup - I presume you have one
    or
    2)Use Microsoft's VHD Tool and repair the VHD
    or
    3)Google will also give you a few other possibilities.

    I recently had this happen. I'm guessing you don't have a backup or you wouldn't be posting this. I found that I was able to mount the vhd on my windows 8 pc and then I was able to scan it with GetDataBack for NTFS by Runtime Software to recover the data in the drive. Microsoft's tool did not work for me.
