Migrated VM's show reference to old datastore

After we migrated some VM's from one datastore to another, the prior datastore still shows on the VM's properties page, even though browsing that datastore shows no remnants of that VM.  Can we safely unmount the prior datastore, or could we have issues?  Also, does anyone know what causes this?

    usually links to isos, floppy drives, virtual machine disks, if uncertain check the VMX for any reference before you delete the database,
