hi, I have a 2008 hyper-v server that i'm cleaning up. I have 3 snapshots of one image and would like to delete them.

I'm just a bit nervous it can mess up.
Can i just delete the entire snapshot tree. With out it effecting the main image.

the snapsots are a year old.

Normally you should have no problems. Even in case when you have not enough space for merging snapshots you got error message and the VM returns to previous state. But, as always, it is good to have a valid backup.
