A virtualization program like Parallels Desktop 11 can run many operating systems simultaneously on today's powerful PCs. The virtual machine and dual-boot can both help you run Windows on Mac, and you should be careful and back up your data regularly while running Windows 10 on Mac with Parallels Desktop 11. Here are some ways to recover Windows 10 pvm files on Mac:

1. Restore Windows pvm files with backups. If your Mac can still boot into the Recovery Mode, you can choose "Restore from Time Machine" to access your Time Machine backups, and you should find the pvm files in these backups manually. If you have other Windows backups, you can restore the wanted files from a recent backup.
