This is a quick tip for managing files on a VMware datastore. We’re simply mapping a datastore to a PSDrive that we can then
$DS = Get-Datastore MyDatastore New-PSDrive -Location $DS -Name ds -PSProvider VimDatastore -root "\" Set-Location ds:\
After that, you can
Remove-Item, etc. Basically any command you can run against a file system, you can run against a datastore.
It comes in handy quite a bit, I’ve even wrapped it in a function.
