    I copied a 500Gb vhd file containing an SQL server. The virtual
    machine was shut down. I copied with windows explorer but it would
    give me an error message and abort the copy. Then I tried to copy the
    file with SyncToy. When synctoy completed the copy process both the
    source and the target files were 0MB. The source VHD file will not
    recover with undelete software. Any I deas on what I should do next.

    Thanks Tacticon

    500 GB? I didn't know you could create a virtual hard drive that large.

    But I don't see what this really has to do with Virtual PC so not sure why
    you're asking here. You might get better help from a Windows newsgroup or
    forum. Incidentally, what was the error message you got when copying via
    Explorer? Was the file still OK after that aborted?

    In any case, if the .vhd file got hosed while copying it, there's likely not
    much you can do after the fact.
