If you know what Datastore the virtual disks are on, rt-click on this Datastore and select Browse Datastore. Find the virtual disks, rt-click, and select Delete From Disk. If you created the disks "with" the VM, go into the VM folder on the datastore and choose to delete the other virtual disks. They should have the name of the VM with "_1" , "_2" ....something like that. The current virtual disk you're using you can check the actual name of it. Rt-click your VM > Edit Settings then in the Hardware tab click the Hard Disk and look on the top right side and see the Datastore name it's on and the virtual disk name. DO NOT DELETE THAT VIRTUAL DISK :)

Hope that helps.
