Unlinked Files Report

Access through:

Available to:

All Access Rights Levels

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 is not supported for SCVMM managed systems.

The use of this report is experimental, and Embotics is 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.

See Running and Scheduling Reports for printing details.
