Virtual Flash Problem (ESXi7)

Hi there,

I have installed ESXi7 to my dedicated server. I followed the normal procedure, nothing abnormal. Nevertheless, I have come across something called "Virtual Flash" which covers 119 GB of my disk space. I've attached a screenshot. I looked vmware docs to handle this problem; however, I couldn't find any of the stated areas on the web UI, see.

-- I would like to add that I have never seen this. I have installed ESXi on an HDD various times. I did not come across. This is the first time that I have ever installed ESXi on an SSD.

    What is your hardware and drives? There should be more screens available on the storage pages.
