Recovery of a lost or deleted virtual machine .vmx configuration file

Rule No 1 when using Vmware: never put it on a NTFS formatted drive and share it between Windows and Ubuntu. I have it twice corrupted – the VMX file – and the entire VM was lost.

Just put it entirely on Linux formatted drive (like ext4) will be much safer.

But luckily this time round I found this:

https://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1002294

And using it I managed to salvaged the entire VM.

And the "vmdk" to be included into the new virtual machine has to be carefully selected: don’t select the "redo log files" instead, as explained below:
