For some reason the machine running Vsphere 4 froze yesterday night.  Of course this created a huge problem.  The backup did not complete and I cannot kill the snapshot.

When I browse the Datastore I see all the "vmdk" files but I am not sure the one I should delete.  Also I know that I must edit one (maybe more) to let the system know not to look for the previous snapshot.  But unfortunately I don't know which one and I don't know how?

Can you help?.
