To find out whether the .vmdk file has errors that can be fixed, please provide the following information in the first step:
- a detailed list of files in the VM's folder/package (i.e. the output of ls -al from the command line)
- the provisioned virtual disk size (i.e. the size that you've configured in the VM's settings)
- the current vmware.log file (if it contains details about the issue).
The configured disk size is 100 GB
Where would I find the vmware.log file?
How do I obtain the output of Is -al and what is it?
Sorry,but if I knew anything about PC's I wouldn't be using a Mac with Fusion. I'd be using a PC

Please run the "Collect Support Information" command from the VMware Fusion (menu bar) > Help > Collect Support Information, and then attach the .zip file it created on your Desktop to a reply post. This should contain the details I need along with additional information.
I created the zip file but don't see how to create a zip vile in this thread. I started a new one (Think) with the .zip file but it is in a different location apparently
The log file shows different errors. Disk-s001.vmdk has logical errors, and Disk-s011.vmdk shows IO-Errors.
Please check whether the disk on which the VM is stored has logical, or even physical errors.
Try to copy Disk-s011.vmdk to another disk to see if this works, or if you get IO-Errors.

André - thanks I will give that a try.
BTW -This reply box only has @mention in the lower right corner and I don't see an Attach link there.
