VMware workstation 11.0 all virtual machine files locked
Hello Experts. I am using VMware workstation 11.0 for home lab. all virtual machines got power off by themselves sometime during the night, when i try to power one on, i received the following error: "could not open virtual machine, .vmx file not found" for all virtual machines. all these virtual machines are not running on any esxi host. when I went the disk where i am storing the files (local disk on server), all files have the lock icon, with .NM4 extension (see attached pic). How can i fix this?, Has anybody encountered this issue before? Please assist. pic1.PNG
