I recently started noticing HDD performance issues with my vmware team. The team contains 10 virtual machines with various client OS I support. I used the defragments utility from the vmware settings page for the HDD. The defragemnt completed with no errors. I continues to run the defrag on each of the windows based VMs. Now that i've finished that if I start the VM I receive an error access the the Vittial HDD.
Looking at the file structure it look slike everything is there but i'm not real sure what eash file does so something might have gone wrong. Every VM i defragmented has this problem.
Vmware 6.5, Windoes Vista x64.
