My host crashed over the weekend and now when I try to start my VM I get the error in the title for each of the VM disks and then it ends with a message that the VM failed to start. I’m new to this world so I’m not sure where to begin looking. There are folders inside the VM folder with the name of each disk and then ending in .lck I’m thinking these might be locks. Do I just need to delete those folders?
