Name / Path

Size

Note Image

To reduce disk-space usage, snapshots that reference the same directory reference each other, with older snapshots referencing newer snapshots. If a snapshot references data stored by another snapshot, the data is not freed until both snapshots are deleted. Therefore, deleting a snapshot might not free the entire amount of space displayed because another snapshot might be referencing the data stored by the snapshot.
