Deleting Snapshots for a Datastore

When a snapshot is created, an expiration time is assigned to the snapshot. However, you can override the expiration time by explicitly deleting a snapshot. Deleting a snapshot removes the snapshot from the Storage Center.


  1. Select the datastore for which you want to delete snapshots.
  2. Select Actions > All Dell Storage Actions > Snapshot > Delete Datastore Snapshot.
    The Expire Storage Center Snapshot wizard starts.
  3. Select the snapshots that you want to delete.
  4. Click Next.
    The Ready to Complete page opens.
  5. Click Finish.
