    initial v2  
    3838If you delete the snapshot files/folder by hand, you still can not delete the snapshot from the VirtualBox. You just receive a "file not found" error. However, it is now possible to delete the locked child hard disk. After this point, you can remove the snapshot, and remove the virtual machine completely.

    4949''PS: Removing a virtual machine has to be simpler, and less complicated for the user. The process has to be automatic, and file removal must be asked to user. Throwing errors is not a good way.[[BR]]
