VMware diskmount utility

VMWare disk mount utility, claimed by VMWare, able to mount virtual disk to local (host) operating system file system. In fact, this utility corrupted one of my VMware snapshots which in turn unable to boot the OS.

The error was:

Unable to open disk "F:\Virtual\Windows XP Pro\Windows XP Pro-000002.vmdk": The parent virtual disk has been modified since the child was created. (18).

Luckily I have more than 1 snapshots, thus rolling back to earlier version bring the OS alive again.
