How to repair your multi file VMWare disk

Linux vmware

Recently I deleted a snapshort from my virtual machine and I got a message that the virtual disk needs repair. The site Repairing a virtual disk in Workstation explains how to do this. in detail.

Due to the reason I selected to split the disk into multiple files, there were many files that could be the reason for the message. So I helped myself with a short find command.

find -type f -name "*vmdk" -exec vmware-vdiskmanager -R {} \;
