Error cleaning up virtual machines in Fusion

This post was originally published on this site


I have a problem with several Virtual Machines in Fusion 11 when trying to do a ‘clean up virtual machine’ as suggested by Fusion.

The error message is:

“An error occurred while consolidating disks: Directory not empty.”


I don’t know what to do, or how to fix it.

The machine had several snapshots, And one by one I deleted them, but after every delete of a snapshot in the GUI, the same error message came up.

Those snapshots are not visible in the GUI anymore, but the vmdk files still have several snapshot files in the .vmware package folder.


How can I ‘repair’ this, and what is going wrong?
