    ESXi 4 all VMs powered off deleted from the datastore

      Hello,

       

       

      All my powered off VMs in the datastore have been deleted and only the powered on VMs are been shown in the datastore, but when I check the files there are only 2 files .vswp and .vmdk for every powered on VMs.

       

       

      Is there a bug in ESXi 4 that deletes all VMs powered off from the datastore. I believe my datastore was almost out of disk space, the capacity is 1 TB and last when i checked the free space was arnd 100 GB.

       

       

      I am worried as to where all my VM are and how it got deleted from the system.
