Broken Hyper-V AVHD Chain recovery

I have been helping people around the world recover data from Hyper-V avhd chain disasters since 2009. I have helped people in a lot of countries and cities , some of which include.

Newyork

Germany
Paris
London
Sweden
Belgium
Netherlands
Australia
Singapore
Korea
Russia
People find me for help via the following forum posts.
  1. Snapshots are not for production servers. They are not backups.
  2. Never delete a snapshot in a chain.
  3. If you delete a snapshot via hyper-v console , wait for it to merge back into it’s parent.
  4. Use Microsoft DPM 2012 and hardware vss writers where possible.
  5. Never increase the capacity of a base vhd when it has a broken avhd chain.
  6. Some recommendations on vhd recovery are visible on my linkedin profile
  7. Windows Server 2012 will make it easier to recover from broken snaphot chains.
