I have vmware 9.0 inside my windows 7 , but suddenly my windows 7 shut down due to an error , and it restart again. But when I start my VM I got the following error :-

Failed to lock the file
Cannot open the disk 'C:\Users\XXXX Dev.vmdk' or one of the snapshot disks it depends on.

Can anyone advice what is causing this problem and how I can solve this ?
