What VMDK is used my virtual machine?

Community.  This was a hard question to articulate which is why I assume I wasn't getting many hits in the search results.  

I have numerous folders and VMDK files in my host datastore and I cannot tell which VMDK is assigned to which VM.  It's confusing because I want to delete anything not being used in order to maximize storage.  I can't tell what to delete and what not to delete at this point.  Some are intuitively named but others are just called "New Virtual Machine 1"

In vSphere you can edit the properties of a VM and then look at the Hard Disks assigned to the VM. It will tell you the path to the vmdk.
