I don't have vmware installed right now, have you set the usb to be used by the virtual machine? if no usb ports are in use on the virtual machine it wont find anything.

    look into the xp device manager do you see any usb ports there? if not then the vmware is most likely not configured to use any usb ports, it may be possible to use the extral harddrive over the vmware network, connect it to your mac, and share the drive for network. then go to the virtual machine and try to access the shared network drive. I don't have much experience with macs so I don't know right now how to share a drive on a mac for the network.

  • Ekse Aug 07, 2008

    Ok, first make sure that usb controller is present and that network is in nat mode.



    in nat mode is easy to figure out the address of the host computer and the address of the virtual machine.



    Il have to install xp into the virtual machine now to figure the rest out.

How to Restore Files From a Windows Image


Windows 10 OS provides ample opportunities for data backup which include tracking file history and functionality that allows creating an image of the entire system. The concept of the system developers is that the functions of File History are required for convenient and rapid everyday recovery of user data, while a system image is created not so often and allows complete recovery of a partition (including system files) to a certain operable OS.
It is recommended to create a backup system image copy before modifying the hardware configuration of a computer, when updating the system, installing new drivers and so on. If something goes wrong, a backup system image copy will allow you restoring the system to the operable condition of Windows. However, when restoring from such image all the information on the system disk is erased by the image files. What should we do if we need only some files to be restored from the system image?
Fortunately, this task is rather easy. The matter is that the standard system of creating a backup system image copy in Windows 10 is based on the concept of virtual disks (Virtual Hard Drive). That is, images are recorded and stored as virtual drive files in the format vhdx (Virtual Hard Drive). Such virtual drives can be easily mounted with standard features of Windows 10 and be operated as ordinary drives within the system. Attaching such disk to the system, a user can restore from the backup system image separate files and directories.

Connecting a VHD disk containing a backup system image copy

System image is usually backed up to a separate physical disk or a network folder. That is why the first thing to do is to connect to the computer a media containing a backup copy of Windows 10 image (or connect a network folder).
Open the computer management console Computer Management and go to disk manager Storage->Disk Management (this console can be launched from the menu WinX by pressing the key combination Win+X and selecting the item Disk Management). In order to mount a vhd virtual disk select the item Attach VHD in the Action menu.

http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-wyytcj10vubwvpdmj0eoj2yx-1-14.png

In the window that appears click Browse and specify the path to vhdx file. This file is usually stored on a drive that contains a backup system image copy in the directory with a name in the following format [Backup_Drive]:\WindowsImageBackup\[PC_Name]\Backup xxxx-xx-xx xxxxxx. In our example, complete path to the vhdx file is as follows: \\[PC_Name]\VHD\08_01_2016.vhd.

http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-wyytcj10vubwvpdmj0eoj2yx-1-5_0.png

After the virtual drive has been mounted it has to be assigned a drive letter. To do it, click the right mouse button on the drive and select the menu item "Change Drive Letters and Path".

http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-wyytcj10vubwvpdmj0eoj2yx-1-9_0.png

In the window that opens click Add and assign any letter to the drive, for example, E:

http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-wyytcj10vubwvpdmj0eoj2yx-1-0_0.png

After this operation, a new drive will appear in the system, to which letter E:\ is assigned. Open in with Windows Explorer or any file manager and find the files that need to be restored.

http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-wyytcj10vubwvpdmj0eoj2yx-1-2_0.png

Advice. User documents (photos, videos, music and other documents are usually saved to user's profile in the directory E:\Users\{user_name}.
After you have found and copied the necessary files, the external disk can be disconnected and as a result, the virtual vhd disk will also disappear from the system. Separate files from the system image can be recovered in the same way in Windows 7 and 8 as well.
If suddenly happened the lost of VHD image of Windows (for example, accidentally or intentionally deleted) it can be recovered by Hetman Partition Recovery. After recovering it with data recovery software you can restore individual files by stated above algorithm.

I used Diskwarrior on my Mac external hard drive got error 0,1613


You should STOP trying to run Disk Warrior. You drive is probably failing. What you need to do is boot the mac into Target mode and hook it up to another machine, copy off your important files ( start with the critical stuff first ).

Then after you've got everything, format and reinstall the OS. If you've got a copy of DriveGenius I' d do a hardware scan on the drive. It's probably toast.
