Here is the back story --
I had consolidation/snapshot problems with a VM server.
To solve it I ended up cloning the server, and using the clone.
I deleted the original in VCenter, "Delete From Disk" not "Remove From Inventory".
Now looking at my datastore, the old server is not gone from there, it is still there. I checked in on the new server, and it is not using any of the .vdmk files for discs. Am I safe to delete the directory for the older server? Is there some other things I should check before doing so?
