I have two VMs which stores their snapshots on a diffrent drive. I am interested how to delete them not to cause any crash.

situation for one machine:

- snapshot 1
-- snapshot 2
-- snapshot 3
--- now

if I delete snaphost 1, 2, 3 there will be a merging to one vhd in the primary VM folder and the snapshots folder will be empty? Am I right? Can I then safely reformat the disk where all snapshots were located?
