ESXi 4.1 and a vm that has delta files and many vmdk files

I have a vm that had some delta files on it so I created a test snapshot and then deleted them all. When I clicked on delete all there is a consolidated helper alsp showing up there but when I say to delete all, it comes back after 95% with a message saying that a file is locked.
Now if I go into edit the setting of the vm, the disk is running on delta vmdk files. How do I get it off of the delta vmdk file?

Okay, first I need you to upload a screenshot of the datastore.

Do you use Veeam, any other backup product, check the virtual disk is not connected to Veeam appliance, VM or other appliance
