VMware Error: Failed to lock the file… When starting the Virtual Machine

When I started my Virtual Machine today morning; I got a scary message that “VMware failed to lock the file” and VMware would not boot up my VM. At the moment I got the idea, we had a blackout last night and I was working with my VM.

Upon searching I got the solution that removing .lck files from where your VM is located solves the problem…

Happy Troubleshooting!!
