Matching Virtual Machine Name against vmdk File Name in VMWare

Hi,
 
 I have a VMWare server where I created several VMs.
 I don't recall why I did, but I just discovered that a couple of Virtual Machine names that I assigned when I created  new VMs do not exactly match .vmdk disk file names as seen on the screenshot. What do I need to do so that they all match?
For example, Win71 VM shown on left window pane has the folder name "Backup" in datastore1 and its vmdk name is Backup.vmdk.
I would like the folder name and all associated file names to follow the name "Win71" as the Netbios computer name  is "Win71" on the network.
Virtual MachineDatastore Browseris it possible?

To manually do this, is time consuming....

If you had Storage vMotion, you would just migrate the VM from one datastore to another, and all the files would be renamed to the same name in the inventory, as you do not have access to storage vMotion, you will have to do it manually, I warned you it's time consuming, and sometimes not worth the effort.

see here how to do it...
