Currently best way to remove files from datastore?


So I'm using Remove-Item to delete folder with some files within and it works "out-of-the-box" with my current PowerShell/PowerCLI configuration.




Remove-Item -Path "<pathToFolderOnDatastore>\<targetDatastore>" -Recurse




It generates as I believe a task for deleting each file in my vCenter (and that looks a bit scary btw).

However when I browse a datastore directly from that vCenter, tick target folder and hit "DELETE" it generates one task ONLY.


Q: What vCenter uses to delete files/folders from datastore?
