unmesh Posted August 15, 2020 Share #1 Posted August 15, 2020 (edited) I accidentally deleted the folder containing the second of two DSM VMs on ESXI 6.7U3 and am hoping I can recover the installation because it was a simple one as these things go. I have a copy of the customized v1.03b DS3615x 6.2 synoboot file which I was using along with a single RDM'ed hard drive for the data and think I can recreate the VM settings from memory. However, I updated DSM from the GUI one or more times since the original installation (I'm guessing to 6.2.2 24922 Update 6 rather than U4 in my .sig) and vaguely remember reading that synoboot gets modified when that happens. The hard drive in question shows 3 partitions in ESXi, two of about 2GB each and a 3rd that takes up the rest of the drive. Before I fire up the VM, any pointers on how to proceed without losing the data on the hard drive? For the future, is there a best practice around creating copies of the synoboot file on DSM updates?
