No idea where the link you quoted points as it requires authentication. Check the VM's home directory for a ~.vmx file.
Temporary file - seems to be swap file - verify if you have free space in the data store where swap file gets created
You could try connecting the vmdk files to a newly created VM (create a new VM with the same settings as the current one and connect the existing vmdk(s) ) ...
Maybe there's some problem with the vmx file (config file), you can try download/edit it to see if something isn't right?
