ESX 5.1- delete HDD but the vmdk stays on disk

Had two hard-drives allocated to a server. We didn't need the second one so removed it using the 'edit settings' section however the vmdk file is still on the disk.  IS it safe to just delete the VMDK file?

It is safe to delete.  The VMDK is not deleted when you do the above, needs to be removed manually.

If you want to DELETE the VMDK from Disk and Virtual Machine at the same time, use the second option!

Remove from Virtual machine and Disk!
