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.

1

In the vSphere Client inventory, right-click the virtual machine and select Delete from Disk.

2

Click Yes 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.
