Discard snapshot should have a confirmation dialog.

Select a VM, then go to Snapshots tab. Upon right-clicking on any snapshot, we have two options: Discard Snapshot and Show details

The problem is: since Discard Snapshot is the first option, it is easy to accidentally select it. I'm a very careful person, but even then I managed to click on it by accident. Actually, I've not exactly clicked... I pressed the right mouse button, then the mouse accidentally moved a few pixels, and I released the button. It was just a matter of a few pixels in a fraction of a second, and now that snapshot is gone.


  • Move Discard option from the first item to the second.
  • Add a small confirmation dialog, telling exactly what's going to happen: This snapshot will be merged to the next one and then deleted. This action is irreversible. Are you sure? [Discard and merge] [Cancel]
