Keep getting the same error for two VM's on the same host:

There is no more space for virtual disk *******.*******.vmdk. You might be able to continue this session by freeing disk space on the relevant volume, and clicking retry. Click Cancel to terminate this session.

We inherited this aging infrastructure, apart from just spinning the VM's back up how can we resolve this.

The datastore only has 1.00MB left of free space. But the virtual disks have plenty of free space left on them.

You need to expand datastore to other disks.
Note that single snapshot can grow to size of disk if kept for too long.
