Deleting a Snapshot


If a snapshot is no longer used, you can release the virtual resources by deleting the snapshot from the system. Snapshot deletion has the following constraints:

  • A snapshot can be deleted only when its status is Available or Error.
  • If a disk is deleted, all the snapshots created for this disk will also be deleted.


  1. Log in to the management console.
  2. Click in the upper left corner and select the desired region and project.
  3. Under Storage, click Elastic Volume Service.
  4. In the navigation tree on the left, choose Elastic Volume Service > Snapshots.

    The Snapshots page is displayed.

  5. In the snapshot list, locate the row that contains the target snapshot and click Delete in the Operation column.
  6. (Optional) If multiple snapshots are to be deleted, select in front of each snapshot and click Delete in the upper area of the list.
  7. In the displayed dialog box, confirm the information and click Yes.
