I would not recommend deleting anything manually. If you've removed VMDKs belonging to other VMs from that proxy, then no extra files should be seen in the proxy VM folder. Can you run this
report to see if these disks are actually used?

What can I do in order to avoid re-creating them?
Not sure I understand what would you like to re-create. All you need to do here, is to de-attach disks from other VMs, clean up the folder and then open a ticket to understand why virtual disks from other VMs are not removed
from the proxy configuration after running a backup job in a hotadd mode.
