Broken/corrupt HDD file

    I am having trouble with one of my VMs.
    When I look at the the files in the Finder there is a "winxp.hdd" file (4 MB in size ???) and a "winxp.hdd.temporary" file (10 GB in size). Also there are .mem, .fdd and .pvs files.

    When I start the VM Parallels tries to boot the VM but hangs in the DOS phase and unmounts the volume containing the VM (the volume is a software RAID 0 set).

    The problem first occured after letting the Mac sleep with Parallels still running.
    Is there any way to repair damaged or corrupted VMs?

    Can I rename the .temporary file to the normal .hdd to fix this?
    Which files should I remove?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Temporary file has been created when you tried to convert your hdd image to new version. You should delete HDD file and rename .temporary to normal hdd and convert it again.
