Recover VHDX – Cannot mount

Hello,

We had experienced a virtual machine crash, and the virtual machine could no longer boot.

Host:  Windows Server 2012 (Hyper-V host)

Guest VM:  Windows Server 2012

I then made a copy of the virtual machine and configuration to attempt recovery from a Windows Server 2016 for recovery.

I tried to use the Inspect Disk function on the .AVHDX file, which then it asks to Inspect
Parent 
disk.  Once I try to inspect the parent disk, the same error occurs where it says the parent .VHDX is corrupt.

“An error occurred when attempting to retrieve the virtual hard disk

VM_Disk_0_HD_E6701573-EB9F-413… on server UNIREC.

Failed to get the disk information.

An unexpected error occurred: The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable. (0x80070570).

Failed to get the disk information.

The Hyper-V Virtual Machine Management service encountered an unexpected error: The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable. (0x80070570).”

 

EventID 27000 is logged in the Hyper-V VMMS storage log with the following error:

Failed to open attachment ‘E:Hyper-VvirtualbootVM_Disk_0_HD_E6701573-EB9F-4131-AC77-89C05EC878AC.vhdx’. Error: ‘The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.’.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!
