VmWare should have some yearly maintenance where old .log files are cleaned up. I’m told these are just performance data and records of past operations.
Use the datastore browser and find vmware-##.log files that are over 6 months old and delete them.
don’t delete vmware.log this likely isn’t possible while the VM is running.
as you can see from the picture, old log files can be quite large.
take this opportunity to look for directories from deleted or moved VMs that only have a few .png files left in them.
