Vm Still Present on VM After Storage vMotion

We are running vCenter 5.1 and all host are running ESXi 5.1 update 3. I just did a storage vmotion of a vmotion to a new datastore and see on the properties for the VM all VMDK's are not on the new datastore. Yet in the GUI still shows up under the old datastore. Now the VM is a really old NT4 server.

Please see the attached screen shot....

It's possible to move only some VMDKs with Storage VMotion, or to move the VMDKs but not the VMX files, but you would almost certainly have been aware of it had you done that.

The GUI can lag behind changes; does a refresh help?

The fact that it was an NT4 server VM should not affect what you see.

Have you tried browsing the datastores to see what's what in both the old and new locations?

I have  been doing storage vmotions all day and this is the only VM that still shows up on the old storage. I have rebooted my workstation and it has not helped and yes the VM is listed on the new datastores

Well I figured out the issue and had to say this missed the fact the VM had a floppy disk image that was on the old datastore. :o)

Hope this helps anyone else out there...
