Use the Unlinked Files Report to discover potentially wasted storage by finding VMDKs and other files on disk that are not associated with a VM.

This report isn't supported for SCVMM cloud accounts.

The use of this report is experimental, as such we are looking for customer feedback in this area.

Important: Users with sufficient permission can delete a linked clone's source VM, but the base disks will remain available to the linked clones. If the base disk is removed, the linked clones will no longer operate properly. Be careful when using Commander reporting to identify unlinked files, as this report may inappropriately show these base disks as unlinked/unused files.
