I get this following error "The process cannot access the file because another process has locked a portion of the file" when I want to boot my VM.
I searched a lot about it and found solutions like remove .Ick files, or uncompress NTFS files, but none of those worked for me!
please help me I have some important files on my VM, I wish I could grab those files at least!
Your antivirus might be scanning your VM. Make sure to exclude the VM folder from your antivirus, then reboot and try again.
> has locked a portion of the file
Thats odd - can you provide some details about the locked file ?
Hello and welcome to the community
Can you check and be ensure there is no other VMware Workstation process that may used that VM files?! Please check the list of your system's processes about the Workstation application, in similar situation you may not have access to that VM and its related operations like power-on/power-off actions.
