VirtualBox how to delete snapshots

Just a quick one, I wanted to clean up my VBox snapshots for an image, I am using the latest and greatest version. I suddenly realised it is not available in the VBox UI anymore. 😦

You can run it from the command line though!

First things first, lets say your image is called TestXP run the following:

vboxmanage showinfo TestXP

This will give you the UUID’s for your snapshots.

For each Snapshot that you want to delete enter the following:


vboxmanage snapshot TestXp delete UUID

Simple as that…. Prefer the UI method though πŸ™‚

    “showinfo” is not correct is should be: “showvminfo”
