VMWare Workstation Pro 16.2 cannot map vmdk to local file system.

Jump to solution

When I run VMWare Workstation Pro 16.2.0 on Windows 10 Pro, I found I cannot map vmdk to my local file system. When I run it as Administrator, nothing happens at all. When I run it as a common user, I can see there is a new volume but it says there is not recognizable file system on that volumn.

I don't know where to find the log, so I tried to repair VMWare Workstation with the installation program. Unfortunately, nothing changed. What should I do?

Thank you for help and support.

Sorry, I found I tried to map ext4 vmdk to Windows NTFS file system. I tried to open it with Linux and it works well. Thank you for your concern.
