I was running Ubuntu in VMware Player. It froze up when I was using it, so I killed it with the Task Manager. The reason it froze was because I ran out of disk space. So after killing the process I made more space. But now, if I try to run the virtual machine again, I get the following error
Error while powering on: VMware Player cannot connect to the virtual machine. Make sure you have rights to run the program and to access all directories it uses and rights to access all directories for temporary files.
How can I fix this, or at least recover some of my files inside the virtual machine?
