The *.rdmp folder is created when an RDM is configured for a virtual machine. The RDM needs to be removed before this folder can be deleted.  Make sure the VM is no longer using the RDM before it is deleted.

I checked the VM and the VM is not using or mapped to this rdmp vmdk. Is there a way to find out from other vms if the rdmp vmdk is in use?

What you may do is to run RVTools (https://www.robware.net/rvtools/) to get an overview.
