The simple solution is to remove this directory (you'll recognize it by the extension ‘.lck') The error is most likely caused by a wrong shutdown of VMware (either it crashed, or drwxrwx-T 5 4.0K .. -rwxrwx-- 1 2.0G 564db544-bc20-775d-7ebe-35a1a7ba303b.vmem drwxrwx-- 3 4.0K caches -rwxrwx-- 1 4.0M vmmcores-1.gz -rw-r--- 1 61K vmware-0.log -rw-r--- 1 61K vmware-1.log -rw-r--- 1 61K vmware-2.log -rw-r--- 1 61K So to solve this, for example in my case: in the .vmdk I saw that the parentFileNameHint was set to another location. You can read or write to the vmdk file without loading the virtual system.
Please help is there any other way to fix issue. It should consolidate disks for you.
