VS Code Won’t Open After Unplanned Restart (Failed to deserialize the V8 snapshot blob)

The visual studio was running fine in my machine till an unplanned restart happened. Soon after restart VS didn’t open giving me the below error. I reinstalled the Visual Studio Code without uninstalling which fixed the issue. In addition, it started without any loss to previous plugins and open projects.

Error
