I ran a scripted backup from a Xenserver 5.5 with 3 VMs which creates a snapshot and then copies an .xva file to a network storage device and then deletes the snapshots.

Due to a permission issue the backups were not stored and the snapshots were not deleted.

I fixed the permissions and ran the script again and this time it snapshotted and created the backup .xvas on the network storage.

However, it has left the original snapshots in place.

My question is:

Can I manually delete these snapshots without causing my running VMs any data loss problems?
