My Linux box that hosts several VMWare windows instances had the power cord 

One of the VMWare instances refuses to boot, telling me:
Cannot open the disk '/LONG PATH TO/Mirus_XP-000001.vmdk' or one of the 
snapshot disks it depends on.

Should I be able to merely delete them and start up?

I'm currently backing the dir up before changing anything.
