Snapshot location on VMware 5.5

Run a PowerCLI to list all snapshots on my VMware server. However, I can't locate some snapshot (eg. IMSVA_replica is no longer exist, we only use IMSVA_replica1).

Any idea where does these snapshot locate ?

Snapshots should always be in the VM folder, Only if manually were changed.

You can check here how to change the location  and to check if there is any rule to allocate in a different location: https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2007563

You can also read a little more about snapshots here: https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/1002929

The reason you didint find the snapshot since its the replication snapshot , please check your Veeam configuration where you have configured the replication

Veeam doesn't leave snapshots in VMs.

Also Veeam uses VM settings location for the temp snapshots.
