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

  • Deleting a snapshot is a permanent action and cannot be reversed. Once deletion is completed, the original snapshot 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.
