I needed to put in a new HD in my machine so I copied out the vmware folder housing my VM. I compared sizes and total files and all was well.
I installed a new host OS, installed VMware, copied over the files, started VM and pfft, missing vmdk files.
No problem right, I went back to the original to look for those files and they're not there!
The file VMWare claims it is missing file is vXP_1-000009.vmdk
The files on in folder are vXP_1-000001,2,3,5,7,8,11,12,13,14,17.vmdk
It worked prior to the copy, why would it be looking for files that aren't there?
