Dear experts,
i've terminated the space on datastore. So i've consolidated the running virtual machine. But i think that some files related to removed screenshots are still on datastore.
You can see on attachhed file the situation.Actually there aren't screenshot on virtual machine.
Wich vmdk files can i manualy remove safetly ?
Thanks a lot
Regards

I would say no files can be deleted, until you sort out the snapshot!

did you know, you have a snapshot?

Why do you not think, you do not have any snapshots, see the folders on the datastore....there are snapshot files.

also check the VM, too see if it's using a snapshot.
