We spoke on reddit.
Can you please zip up all those files you link to on pastebin? It is inconvenient to click as you loose context easily.
Also include the vmware.log(s) file of the problem VM into that zip and attach it to a reply here.
Please note that "copying snapshots" to another disk makes no sense as a snapshot by itself is pretty much useless, a snapshot is not a backup it contains changed data only (the delta), not the whole state of the disk.
A rule of thumb is to not keep snapshots longer than a few days unless you have a very good reason for the snapshot.
Hopefully @a_p_ can help.
