Deleting a Snapshot from a Storage Array or a Disk

Deleting a Snapshot

You can delete one or more snapshots from a storage array or disk.

You may want to delete snapshots if a hypervisor client is deleted and its snapshots become orphaned.


When you configure an access node in Array Management, you must enable pruning. Pruning enables the access node to delete snapshots associated with data aging in Array Management.


  1. From the navigation pane, go to Manage > Infrastructure.

    The Infrastructure page appears.

  2. Click the Arrays tile.

    The Arrays page appears.

  3. In the row for the storage array or the disk, click the action button action_button, and then click List snapshots.

    The List of snapshots page appears.

  4. Select the snapshots that you want to delete.

  5. In the upper-right area of the page, click Delete.
