I have started a VM backup from my  server using Backup exec 16.

It starts and i had som problens with disk space and i cancel the backup.

After that i realised that we have 2 vmdk in data store. One myserver.vmdk and other myserver-000001.vmdk.

This one is growing and a dont want to keep with it. How can i consolidate or remove this snapshot in VMware?

I dont want to loose any data.

You just simply select the snapshot and click "Delete".

In case of backup job failure of a virtual machine, snapshot created by Backup Exec can be safely removed like any other virtual machine snapshot.
