After you configure or edit space reclamation parameters for a VMFS6 datastore, you can review your settings.


  1. In the vSphere Client, navigate to the datastore.
  2. Click the Configure tab.
  3. Click General, and verify the space reclamation settings.
    1. Under Properties, expand File system and review the value for the space reclamation granularity.
    2. Under Space Reclamation, review the setting for the space reclamation priority.
    If you configured any values through the esxcli command, for example, Medium or High for the space reclamation priority, these values also appear in the vSphere Client.
