I have our email server on a VM and the datastore it resides on only has 20GB free space out of 500GB total. There are multiple VMDK files but when I go to edit the settings in vSphere for this particular VM, only two of them are listed as the actual VMDKs that are currently running:
Hard Disk 1 (C drive for Windows Server 2008) - [Datastore1] ODC-MAIL1-000001.vmdk
Hard Disk 2 (D drive for Exchange 2010 databases) - [Datastore1] ODC-MAIL1_1-000001.vmdk
Are the other two large vmdk files needed? My actual C: drive only takes up 21.5GB and our D drive with Exchange databases on it takes up 77.5GB
