negative file size for nvram file of virtual machine


The Web-Based Datastore Browser reports a nvram file with negative file size.


- Raid 5 is currently degraded due to 1 disk failure of 4.

- Array background consistency check is activated.

- Browsing the data store with the vsphere client, the nvram with negative file size is not visible.

But virtual machine can not launch... sda2 not found...

New hard disk is underway but...

Can this be solved that virtual machine can be started?

We have a copy of the initial state of the virtual machine. Can this be copied to this virtual machine without risk although size of files seems to be different?

Who has experienced a similar situation with negative file size and can throw some ideas.

Many thanks in advance
