I have a VMware ESXI with four working VM workstations. In the datastore there is a vmkdump folder with a dumpfile holding 120 GB of storage. Thus preventing me from adding any more workstations. How can I go about deleting this folder/file. I have tried to just delete and it give the error " Error caused by file /vmfs/volumes/52de2d45-170f2fcc8-106c-001e4f133385/vmkdump/44454C4C-4E00-105A-8043-CAC04FSA4631.dumpfle"
I have been unable to find any console or PowerCLI commands to delete this folder/file.


Software/Hardware used:
VMWare ESXI 5.5
