I understand Turbnomic identify Wasted Files by comparing the files that are on the datastore with which files that vCenter tells us are currently in use by each VM.
So the question is why are there so many active (in used) vmdk files path showing up on the Storage Wasted allocations report? Does the report tell the last time it was touched or in used? What specific methods does Turbnomic used to identify wasted files?
