Move multiple datastores to a folder

We are moving virtual machine from old storage to new datastore today, there are a lot of old datastores need to be removed after migration, for saftey consideration, I move all old datastore to a folder and then do decommission process.

There are more than 60 datastores, and vSphere client not allow move in one time. Here is a PowerCLI script can help move multiple datastores to a folder.

Note: Please make sure your folder name is uniquely.

When you create datastores.txt, please make sure first line is “Name”, one datastore name in each line.
Example:
Name
datastore1
datastore2
datastore3
