    (Solved) VMDK file error

    loybuckz Lurker

      First of all, I would like to apologize for the horrible title. I just can't find a way to describe my problem as a title.


      Now my issue is, I Have 4 vmdk files which are related to 1 drive. and by mistake, I have mounted the OLD vmdk file and marked it as independent. Now, when I looked at the files fromt hat drive. The contents were all old. So, I checked my vm settings and found  that I made the mistake. So, I tried to mount the latest VMDK file but unfortunately, its giving me an error and the virtual machine would not start. Is there a way to fix this?


      Thank you in advance.




      Edit: I found the solution to my own problem and through the link below. It can be used by others as well.
