Failed P2V vmdk files.

I have tried to P2V a couple of machines but they've failed for a variety of reasons. I hadn't realized it, but the vmdk files weer left on the datastore rather than removed as part of the cleanup. Is it safe just to delete them?

Hi ServerAndStorage,

If you are 100% sure that the files you’re talking about are from those failed migrations, you can safely delete them. They are “consuming” your datastore.
