Hello - I'm unable to delete my snapshots - is there a manual way of doing it?

When I try do delete previous snapshots a box comes up saying "cleaning up deleted files"

then after about 10 minutes - it comes up with the error message "unable to delete snapshot"


Thanks :)

When I had this issue and contacted VMWare support the tech. told me that the easiest way to go around this issue is to use vConverter and choose the source and the destination as your ESX host.  There are ways to go into the console and troubleshoot but the tech stated it may or may not work.  Using vConvereter to essentially make another copy of the VM with a single vmdk file(s) was automated and solved the issue.
