VMware Datastore  issue

When I click on a specific VM's  Datastore I see 3 different Folders  with different contents:

filename.org   = has only  11 .png   files
filename.org_1 = has only 4 .png files
filename.org_2 =  has .vmx, vmx.lck, ctk.vmdk, vmdk, hlog, log, vmsd, log, vswp, nvram, vmx~, vmxf and flat.vmdk


My question:
1.Why do I see only One VM in the vCenter and when I go to the DataStore, I see 3 different Folders pertaining to this VM?  What seems to be the issue.

2. Also, I am seeing a warning message in Tasks & Events:
Warning message from Filename.org. The
guest OS has reported an error during quiescing.
The error code was: 5 The error message was:
'VssSyncStart' operation failed: IDispatch error #
8449 (0x80042301)

1. It's been moved and created folders, some may be orphaned folders, and this is quite normal and nothing to be worried about, if you start looking under the bonnet of your car, this is what you could expect to find!

2. VSS Shadow Service failure in the OS.
