A colleague asked if I had a script lying around that could investigate datastores and find orphaned files. Well, I didn’t. But instead of spending a lot of time creating one from scratch I went to our friend google and searched. There were lots of results, but I found one from Powershell guru LucD (lucd.info) and stopped searching. The script and instructions are found here: http://www.lucd.info/2016/09/13/orphaned-files-revisited/ Be aware that the script, or more precisely a VMware VIM method that the script uses, is relatively slow.
Welcome to my blog. I’ll keep this short as a Hello World should be. This blog will be a place for me to post things that I am currently working on and that interests me. If others find it interesting that’s great. Over the years I have been using different communities to my benefit so if I could give something back that would be awesome
