How to recover a permanently deleted virtual machine on vCenter

I accidently deleted a vm on vCenter server and would like to know is there any possible ways to recover it.

Note that I permanently deleted from the disk and the vm is not backup at either.

Any tips on how to resolve this issue will be highly appreciated.

 

Thanks

Hi @Sam0054 ,

If it's deleted from disk, there is no supported way of recovering it. For best advises on such matters, try reaching out to continuum

Hope that helps

You're not really using ESXi 3.5 are you?

I asked moderators to move the thread, seeing as you had posted it in an area for ESXi 3.5.
