I am running a VMware environment and have recently taken four snapshots. Due to an available space issue, I was forced to delete three of these snapshots. I could not properly clean up those deleted snapshots and, as a result, the vmdk files from them still exist in the environment.
Obviously I want to clean up these snapshot files, but when I try to rename them and start the VMware machine I receive a “parent directory not found” error. What should I do?
