    Too Many Snapshots - Only Need One

    justingoldberg Novice

      We have a web db server that we reset every night to a single snapshot, and it never changes. Vmware server creates a snapshot vmdk file every day though, and it fills up the disk. The host is windows 2003 x64 and the guest is the same. Can we delete or consolidate these or revert to just one? We only need a single snapshot, and it reverts at night. The version is "VMware Server pid=5376 version=2.0.2 build=build-203138"

       

      Here's the dir output:
