I accidentally deleted some files from my VM. I want to run this tool: http://extundelete.sourceforge.net/
and also testdisk to try to undelete the files.
The first tool says to execute "dd bs=4M if=/dev/partition of=partition.backup"
Does this create a backup outside or inside the VM? How exactly do I mount the backup once it's created? I'm using VMWare Player.
Any other ideas for data recovery?
