Hi All,

I have serveral .VMRS files from april to July adding up to about 130gb)
I need to reclaim this space but not sure if I can simply delete them.  They are in my snapshots folder but the vm has no snapshots listed.

There is also a .vmrs file that is current with a .vmcx file located in the VM folder which are todays date.

So I do not think the old ones are in use, but what happens if I delete them?  I need the disk space for sure.
