I receive an "access denied" message when trying to connect to Vmware vdisk on a Windows 8 machine.  If I disconnect the vdisk and reconnect to a different vm it is accessible.  I have tried to take ownership of the drive but that did not help.  I have no idea what changed to cause this error.  How do I fix this so the data on the vdisk is readable with this OS?

check for the .lck files which are lock files if you delete those, you should be able to access it.
