    Vcloud issue while importing

      I'm using vcloud director for the first time. We have a requirement to move the on-prem VM's to AWS. When I create a snapshot for one of the VM which is 8gb in vcloud. I see multiple files in the datastores.

       

      ctk.vmdk

      flat.vmdk

      .vmx

      .vmsd

      .nvram

      .vmx~
