Consolidate Snapshots

I wrote a post a while back detailing a few ways to correct “stuck” snapshots – delta files that existed on the datastore but were not reported by the GUI.

vSphere 5 has a new method of removing them straight from the GUI.

Note that managing a 4.x host from vCenter5 doesn’t get you the new consolidate option.
