    Question: Browsing through disks in non-bootable OS?

    mgroen1 Lurker

      Question: Is it somehow possible to browse through local files (C, D drive, etc) in a non bootable VM?

       

      For example, with a dedicated tool that doesn't boot the VM, but allows to view/copy files of the VM in stead?

       

      Background info:

      I have an old (ancient) Windows XP VM, which refuses to boot (activation issues), the thing is there are some files on the VM (Word, Excel documents), I would like to copy.

      So, I can't get the VM to boot properly. Is there an alternative approach to just get access to the drives and copy specific files from the VM?

       

      I use VM Workstation.

       

      Thanks,
