Unable to open file "C:......Windows XP-cl2-000018.vmdk":In fact, the specified file Windows XP-cl2-000018.vmdk is still there, it did not disappear. So, what did the error message want to reveal? I looked around and liked to know what was different, and luckily, there was an odd file named:
The system cannot find the file specified.
- Windows XP-cl2-000018-s032.vmdk-dftshkgmw-tmp
- Windows XP-cl2-000018-s032.vmdk
Now we know the source of the problem is not the parent file specified in the error message, we should trace its child files for more clues.
