Accidently Deleted VM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I accidently deleted a VM - want to know if there is a way I can restore it? Checked Storage Containers - do not find the VHD file but do find an entry with VM name and extension ".Status" and 0 bytes.

    Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

    Unfortunately I am using MSDN subscription so do not have technical support - cannot contact technical support team or raise a ticket for help.

    Thanks /Praveen

  • Hi,

    You have mentioned that when you look in the storage/containers you see an entry with the VM name,extension and the size is 0 bytes.

    When deleting the VM, the attached disks was also deleted, hence the 0 bytes.In this case, the VHD is no longer available and you will not be able to restore the VM. You will need to create a new VM.

    Best Regards,

    Mekh.
