You‚Äôve just scheduled a week of vacation in a remote location near some sand, water and a wee dram of your favorite beverage. Your backup feels confident that he can handle the situation while you‚Äôre gone but just before you walk out that door; you pick up your phone to hear a hysterical voice on the other end explaining that the accounting department VM crashed and now it won‚Äôt start up. You discover that the vmdk file that describes your VM‚Äôs disks has corrupted itself and isn‚Äôt repairable. Nothing makes your palms clammy as fast as a corrupted virtual machine (VM) but if you have a clean pair of sweat bands or a towel handy, you‚Äôll survive it I promise.
Don‚Äôt let the air out of your favorite floatation device just yet. There‚Äôs hope for your VM and your vacation. You can recreate those corrupted VMDK disk descriptor files with little effort and no sweat.
