    Help fixing "The specified virtual disk needs repair (0x3e86)"

    Ado74 Lurker



      I ran the recover space command to on my VM as it was using 120GB of 180GB allocated. As this was taking I while I cancelled it as I had work to do. my mac froze and restarted. Since then i cannot start up the vm. I get the error he specified virtual disk needs repair (0x3e86). I have tried sudo /Applications/VMware\ Fusion.app/Contents/Library/vmware-vdiskmanager -R to repair but it just gives me same error message. Looking at logs I see
