VMware Configuration Parameters

I ran into an issue with the configuration parameters.  I am running veeam backup and recieving an error that it cannot parse a line in the config parameters on the VM.  I checked and noticed I accidently typed it in wrong.

Suppose to be:  isolation.tools.copy.disable
Instead of: isolation:tools.copy.disable.

I corrected the parameter but instead of replacing it, it created a new line with the correct parameter.  Another tech recommended to just comment out the line, I tried that and it made another parameter.  Is there anyway to remove those configuration parameters on the VM or is there a way to reset the configuration parameters?  I am having a hard time finding the information on how to do this.

I attatched a screenshot so you can see what is going on.

I used WinSCP, removed the lines and kept the correct ones.  I re-added the server to inventory and I could not power it on.  I then removed it from inventory again, went through the steps to create a new vm and selected to use existing disks, a new vmx file was created (fresh), and it powered up fine and my backup is working fine.

Just a quick question.  Now i have 2 folders for that vm.  There is a folder where the disks are and the vmx is in another folder on the datastore.

Example:

Server1: Contains the vmdk's
Server1_1: Contains the vmx

Is there a way to consolidate those to together?  Can I just power down the VM, remove from inventory, move all files from Server_1 to Server1 then readd to inventory?
