How to Fix "The Specified Virtual Disk Needs Repair" on VMware Workstation 15 on Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS

You try to enlarge the disk and you run into the error about the disk needing repair.

Verified that works on VMware Workstation 15 on Ubuntu 18.04.1

1. Open terminal on the machine you have VMware Workstation installed

2. /usr/bin/vmware-diskmanager -R /path/to/.vmdk file

3. Go to settings of the VM and try your advanced operation to compact the disk or expand it. Bam...done.
