These should not be created unless you are creating (or re-creating) replication job for the same VM multiple times, in which case the folders are created to prevent conflicts. Thanks.

There are no concurrent jobs at the same time and as I said these folders are empty. Also they only exist on a datastore that does not hold the control-files. (I am splitting system an data to different DS).

I did not say the jobs need to be present now, it is enough if they were created before and then removed... but those folders remained. If you don't believe this is the case, please contact our support and have them investigate this for you. Thanks!
