Recover VM VMX files

#1 Post by madagascar »

Hello all,

I have searched the forum but could not find an answer to my question. I lost a virtual machine on a Mac thats runs vmware fusion. I was able to recover the VMDK files but I dont know how to recover the VMK files.
Is there a way to specify the file extension you are searching for? The VMK file type isn't included in the list of files to search for.
