Snapshot disks changing-Looking for clarity

Snapshots changing

On Friday they were as below

[Name of VM]-000001.vmdk  Approx 984MB

[Name of VM]_1-100001.vmdk  Approx 26GB

[Name of VM]_2-00001.vmdk   Approx 100MB

Now they are as follows

-Hard Disk 1 points to parent [vm name].vmdk 11GB

 

Hard Disk 2 points to a snapshot but a different one [vm name]_1.vmdk 167GB

 
Hard Disk 3 points to a snapshot again a different one [vm name]_2.vmdk 20GB

Any reason for this change, there is a removal and creation of snapshot on a nightly basis
