You can delete any type of VMFS datastore, including copies that you have mounted without resignaturing. When you delete a datastore, it is destroyed and disappears from all hosts that have access to the datastore.

Before deleting a datastore, remove all virtual machines from the datastore. Make sure that no other host is accessing the datastore.


Display the datastores.


Right-click the datastore to delete and click Delete.


Confirm that you want to delete the datastore.
