I have resized the base VMDK disk, without deleting snapshots in ESX 3i. Now I can not access the disk.

Last night I made a mistake. I attached a VMDK file to another VM to resize the disk. However, I did not delete the snapshots first so that their changes would be applied. I then resized the base disk from 8GB to 30GB. Now I do not know what to do to recover the hard drive. This is a new Domain Controller that we have spent 3 days setting up and attaching workstations to.
I have already made a copy of all of the contents fo the folder on the ESX store as a backup.
