Cannot open the disk vmdk or one of the snapshot disks it depends on. Reason: Failed to lock the file.

Cannot open the disk vmdk or one of the snapshot disks it depends on.  Reason: Failed to lock the file.

Hi, recently one of my friend called me and told that when i am opening a virtual machine created by his friend on its system, and all of sudden i have received this error: Cannot open the disk vmdk or one of the snapshot disks it depends on.  Reason: Failed to lock the file.

Solution:

Remove the lck directories, after that try to start the VM machine.
