VMDK Corrupt after host crashed

I've just upgraded to Big Sur and installed Vmware Fusion 12 Player over the top of my old Vmware Fusion 11 Pro installation.

I have a Windows 10 VM and initially it ran successfully.

Unfortunately my Mac crashed and now the VM will not boot.

It tells me that: 

The disk '/Users/nick/Virtual Machines.localized/Windows 10.vmwarevm/Virtual Disk.vmdk' has one or more internal errors that cannot be fixed.

This is a 100GB file and I only need to retrieve one file from it - a large Outlook PST file of about 30GB. If I can retrieve that, I am happy to set up the VM again from scratch.

I have tried running:

sudo /Applications/VMware\ -R /Users/nick/Virtual\ Machines.localized/Windows\ 10.vmwarevm/Virtual\ Disk.vmdk

which reports:

The virtual disk, '/Users/nick/Virtual Machines.localized/Windows 10.vmwarevm/Virtual Disk.vmdk', is corrupted and cannot be repaired.

Is there anything else that I can try?

Many thanks,
