I'm using the Datastore Browser in the VI client to manually back up a Virtual Machine.
Presently it's downloading a file Server_1-flat.vmdk but when I look at the datastore there's no such file in the VM folder on ESXi, nor in any of the other folders.
Downloading in the Datastore Browser doesn't move the files, right, just copies them.
Is there some change that happens to the files when downloaded?
The VM isn't running.
The host is ESXi 3.5. VI Client connected directly to host.
