Shut the server down and it should ask you to Merge the Snapshot with the Main Disk, do not delete it.

You should not run a server with snapshots in production. This is a Microsoft recommendation.

oh dear, if you've got no space left on the disk you are in trouble.

do not delete the snapshot, otherwise you will lose all the changes, from when you started the snapshot.

You need to free up disk space on the disk.

If you are absoutely certain, that you do NOT need the snapshot.

How much space do you have free?

50Mb free?

that's not alot. You could try, deleting the snapshot, but disk space free is dangerously low, to complete an operation like this.

Do you have a current wqorkingt backup?
