I moved Virtual machine from DataStore-1 to DataStore-2, machine is moved on Datastore-2

But after browsing datastore-1 I can still see machine directory on it., I actually want to format this store , worried it should not break the VM.

Pls. assist.

Yes, this is normal, because they are actually in use, when the process is ending, and it does not delete them.

They will be safe to dispose off.
