ESXi Missing Files in Multiple Datastores

This post was originally published on this site

Hello All,


We have an issue with two of our datastores. Both datastores have two disks in them. After moving our server, we booted the machine (unknowingly) with one of the drives disconnected. I’ve reconnected the drive and rebooted, but it seems like a number of files on the datastore are missing. I’m unable to run voma utility because it says that you cannot run it on vmfs datastore that use multiple extents (both datastores are made up of two extents).


The data we’ve “lost” is important, so anything that can help me recover it would be greatly appreciated!
