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?

see my EE Article

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.
