I assume you mean the descriptor file, when you type VMDK header, e.g. the vmname.vmdk, small text file ?

If the descriptor file gets corrupted, you will not be able to start the VM, or register the VMDK with a VM.

it's very easy to repair see here, and is often an issue that they can get corrupted or disappear.
