I have seen the attached report from a colleague of mine saying that we have some orphaned vmdk's. I have a couple of questions

1. What is an orphaned vmdk?
2. How can we know that these are orphaned?
3. Does it mean that we can delete them?
4. I see that in the attachment I see that the so called orphaned vmdk's have been modified recently.
5. What is the best practice to not have orphaned VM's?
