When you no longer need a snapshot, or you have reached your snapshot quota, you can delete snapshots to free up space.

Note
  • After a snapshot is deleted, it cannot be restored. So proceed with caution.
  • If a snapshot has been used to create a custom image, you must delete the associated image before you can delete the snapshot.
