Use the datastore file browser to move files or folders to a new location, either on the same datastore or on a different datastore.

Note

Virtual disk files are moved and copied without format conversion. If you move a virtual disk to a datastore on a type of host that is different from the type of the source host, you might need to convert the virtual disks before you can use them.
