got server 2021 hyperv
got a virtual machine in it.

recently saw the hyperv space is getting filled up fast. found avhdx files are created by snapshots.
my understanding snapshots are to go back if needed. so if i dont need those snapshots, can i just simply delelte to free up some space. or deleting it- will craete any data loss with my current virtual machine ?
have also attached a pic of it      snapshot.PNG
