Remove Snapshot with Command line:

I am trying to remove snapshot using the command lines below.  Retrieving the VMID then Removing snapshots related to that VMID:

 vim-cmd vmsvc/getallvms
Vmid   Name                File                 Guest OS    Version   Annotation
50     VM1    [Shared-Datastore] VM1/VM1.vmx   otherGuest   vmx-14

[root@unknown000c290ed7cb:/vmfs/volumes/5e52777e-3a92a27c-79e3-000c29b2122f/VM1]  vim-cmd vmsvc/snapshot.removeall 50
Remove All Snapshots:

however when I run the ls -lha  command I still see the snapshot there:
-rw-------    1 root     root        6.0M Feb 28 10:19 VM1-000001-sesparse.vmdk
-rw-------    1 root     root         300 Feb 28 10:19 VM1-000001.vmdk

in the snapshot manager there is no Snapshot showing.

Any Help ?
