Hello All,

Today I have found in my Vsphere environment a snapshot created from Veeam on our largest VMs.

The name of the snapshot is "Veeam Backup Temporary snapshot" with description "Please do not delete this snapshot. It is being used by Veeam Backup". The snapshot date is Januar 15, 2016.

We back up this VM every day. I think this is a leftover and it is save to delete the snapshot. Isn't it?

Right, you can remove it manually, however, I'd recommend to investigate the fact why it was not removed during subsequent job runs with out support. Thanks!
