00004-delta.vmdk

I have a vm with disks with native snapshoot, I copied the other disk that is in delta.vmdk, only I can not add it to come, need help to solve.

How should I put in regular vmdk format to be able to access the disk normally

Sorry, but I don't exactly understand what you are trying to achieve. Please clarify.

VMware products use virtual disks with snapshots in chains, i.e. each .vmdk file is chained to its parent .vmdk file, and each chain-link is in use. A snapshot (delta) file without its parent delta, or flat files is not very useful.
