diskdrill-win-recovery-vaultThe tool is quite easy to use and also fast enough (1 TB in few minutes). It’s nice that can can use also images instead of partition, but actually does not support virtual disks (you can mount VHD or VMDK before try to use this tool, but have a native support should be nice in a future version).

Should also be interesting have an Enterprise version that support VMFS recovery (actually there are so few tools that can handle file recovery on this filesystem).

Note for the readers: I’ve got some PRO keys for my tests, if anybody is interested on this product just drop me a note and I can give you a PRO key (at least for the first that will ask a key).
