Hi

You can try to delete your folder by using the ESXi shell. For that, you need to make an SSH connection and then go to your considered path and use the command below:

rm -rf /vmfs/volumes/datastore2/TIA-DC04

I hope this could be helpful

Select "datastore2" on the left, so that folders show up in the right pane. The folder can then be deleted by selecting it from the right pane.
