View the free space on the local store

My local store says that there is only 4 gb of disk space left out of almost a TB of storage. I have 3 vm's totaling about 400GB altogether, how do I find out where all the storage has gone?

Another alternative way to check for Snapshots is to navigate to the Local Storage Area and check for *.vmsn and *.vmsd files.

Please note the deleting snapshots randomly can corrupt VMs resulting in loss of data.
