File '[san2a] VeeamBackup/infocenter01(vm-2682)/infocenter01.vmx' already exists." for both. Is there a way to clear this without deleting the original replicas?

Using Veeam B&R 5.
I have run a replica seed to USB HDD and loaded the VMs on the remote ESX. I had to make a couple of changes to the ESX host directory name to match the advice in the generated readme.txt that accompanied the original seed.
I can connect to the new ESX host and can see the storage and VMs. However when I run my replication job to inject deltas into VMs I get the error...
"...vm_name.vmx already exists..."
and the replica aborts. Well, of course it exists.
I don't want to generate 500GB of VMs again, especially over a 10Mbs WAN! My understanding was that once I loaded the USB seed and made the appropriate changes on the remote host the delta injections would automatically run.
Have I missed something? Unregister on the hosts?
