I'm constantly getting an alarm triggered for 'Datastore Usage on Disk'. It's saying;

Alarm Definition:
([Yellow metric Is above 95%; Red metric Is above 97%])

The total size of the datastore is 319GB. When I console into the virtual machine the disk is reporting there is 108GB's of disk space free. But, the datastore in Vcenter is saying there is only 8.29GB's of free disk space. I'm not quite sure where the mix up is coming from or what to believe. Any help in resolving/learning to understand this will be appreciated.
