To delete a virtual disk, change the VM hardware settings
  1. Make sure the VM is fully powered off (not running or suspended).
  2. Before making hardware changes to your VM, create a template of it. Should any issues arise, you can restore your VM from this template.

  3. Navigate to the VM Settings > Hardware page.

  4. Just above the Windows Disk Editing Information section, the current virtual disks (and their current disk size) for the VM are displayed. To delete a disk, click Delete disk (Delete disk) next to the disk you want to delete.

    If only one disk is listed, don’t delete it. This disk contains the VM operating system.

  5. When you are done making changes, click Save.
