VMware esx. 4.1 safely delete the only snapshot from SnapShot Manger

Hi

I have some VMs on my ESXi and noticed that on of them have very old snapshot. Just to be 100% sure can I delete the snapshot file in snapshot manager? The one which is above "You are here".

The snaphot is named "Ennen asetusten tallentamista" (in english: before saving the settings).

Please see attached PritScreen.

Rgs,

Juha

And since your snapshots are old, it will more than likely take a while for the snapshots to be removed. The progress might show at 95% for quite a while (many minutes to many hours). Just let it run (be patient) until completion....

Thanks

Just selected Delete All and the process is now ongoing. Will close this case after the job is done. Btw 95% allready done.

And Yes, I did want to retain the data. Keep the VM running as it is currently.

Rgs, Juha
Great...let me know how it goes...

Hi

It seems that there were no problems at all. Thanks for answers.

I just wanted to double check from you that I understand correctly how to delete snapshots.
