we have migrated a physical machine to a esx vm machine with the vmware tool.
however, it had an error on the last part and it stoped at 97%.
we deleted the vm machine on esx but the files of it were not deleted. also its impossible to delete them using vmware virtual center.

can anyone tell us a way to delete them without rebooting the server?
