Error message {Delayed Write Failed} Windows was unable to save all the data for the file

vmich used Ask the Experts™
We have one VMware VM that is getting the following error message:
{Delayed Write Failed} Windows was unable to save all the data for the file . The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection

Is there something we need to look at or can this error be ignored because it is possibly a generic error?
From what we can tell, there doesn't seem to be any real issues with accessing data from the server.
The server is running 2012 R2

I would run a sfc /scannow on the server just to do a health check and then if you take a snapshot of the server and restart it once the snapshot has been taken you will know if there are any permanent problems.
