I had a folder name vmwares on a HD USB external drive at the rool level with some VM wares inside (ext3 FS)
Something went wrong when I ran one of the VM with Vmware Workstation and insert another USB stick. The FS was then corrupted.
The Fsck ran but the folder now shows as a file with zero bytes size.-I ran fsck witout any option to repair file system)
How can I recover the ext3 folder??
