VMware Workstation: Error while Opening the machine.

I am getting the following error when I try to open the machine

"The disk 'C:\VM Image\xxxxx.vmdk' has one or more internal errors that cannot be fixed. Restore from a backup copy of this disk.

The specified virtual disk needs repair

Cannot open the disk 'C:\VM Image\xxxx.vmdk' or one of the snapshot disks it depends on.

Module 'Disk' power on failed.

Failed to start the virtual machine."

I tried to delete the .lck files but the result is same

Please let me know if anyone knows. Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the Community,

depending on the damage of the .vmdk file(s) it may be possible to fix the files' metadata. Please attach the VM's latest vmware.log file to a reply post to get details about the detected corruption.
