I am running Windows 10 using VMware Workstation 16 on my Window 10 Laptop. All was well until I put my VM into suspended mode and then put my computer to sleep for the night. Once I booted it up it gave me an error saying that it couldn't find the virtual disk (sorry I don't have the exact error message). So, I provided it a VMDK file from yesterday. Now I am getting this error.
The file specified is not a virtual disk Cannot open the disk 'C:\Users\[user]\Documents\Virtual Machines\Windows 1809 - Box\Windows 1809 - Box-000005-s015.vmdk' or one of the snapshot disks it depends on. Module 'Disk' power on failed. Failed to start the virtual machine.
I must've given it the wrong vmdk file. But when I go to Settings, it is not letting change the file path to a different vmdk.
VMWare VM settings:
I have two questions:
- Why did the VM loose track of the VMDK disk when I put it into suspended mode?
- How can I give VMware the correct VMDK so that the VM will boot up again?
