I was recommended this tool by a colleague as I was facing issues with my VMDK files. I really liked the snapshot feature as it allows me to save the snapshot of the scanning procedure when interrupted and later resume the process by loading the earlier saved snapshot into the tool. I successfully recovered all of my data in three sessions. This saved me a lot of trouble; otherwise, I might have to perform scanning from the beginning each time.
