We have a Windows machine 2008 R2 with 1.7TB of total size (made up of 5 disks). In the last few months we have seen this issue often where the snapshot removal process takes forever (after the disk consolidation needed message notification). In snapshot manager, it doesn't show a snapshot but when you browse the directory, there is a orphaned disk. I have opened cases with VMware and Veeam. Veeam support told me the removal process is passed to VMware and it should be their issue. VMware took a few test snapshots for testing and then removed them (delete all). Some snapshots took a long time to remove.
I have been told/read that version 8 of Veeam has an indicator (snapshot hunter) to show any orphaned but would it help in our situation? The removal process is still taking place at the VMware level?
