Win7 stopped working in Virtualbox 4.1.18 run in Ubuntu. so I tried to run it from snapshot done few months earlier. Big mistake. It was asking if I want to clone the original state, so I did, Virtual box was doing something for 10s but it didn't clone anything just simply restored to state from may. Now all my data from past few months is gone. Is there any way how to recover it? I was trying couple of data recovery tools run in Windows, but it didn't find anything. Is there a some way of doing it from Linux?
To create snapshot is instant when turned off and it takes about 4 seconds when the machine is running. and to virtually wipe out everything by reverting that snapshot takes about half second without leaving any option to get back ??? That is just ridiculous. My virtual drive have 30GB. It takes some time to rewrite that big file. It can't be done instantly.
What I'm looking for here probably is an advice if it possible to recover original .vdi file.
