You use the Delete from Disk option to remove a virtual machine from a host and delete all virtual machine files, including the configuration file and virtual disk files, from the datastore.
Power off the virtual machine.
- Display the virtual machine in the inventory.
- Right-click the virtual machine and select Delete from Disk.
- Click OK in the confirmation dialog box.
The host deletes the virtual machine from its datastore. Disks that are shared with other virtual machines are not deleted.
