deleted vmdk file ESX4


misinterpreting the suggestion found here, I deleted a filename-000001.vmdk file (via Datastore Browser) only to find out that now the VM won't start at all (file not found!). I still have a filename.vmdk but I don't know what to do with it. How can I make the VM start again?

Thanks a lot!

I was able to mount the existing vmdk file and I recovered pretty much everything I needed.

Thanks anyway!

1.How many VMDKs did the VM have originally ?
2.Did you take snapshots of the VM ?
