How to delete a Cloud volume snapshot

Note: This article relates to a product currently in beta testing.

A volume is a detachable block storage device that can be attached to an instance to provide extra storage space, much like connecting a USB drive. A volume snapshot is a point-in-time copy of a volume. You can use snapshots to roll a volume back to the state it was in at the time the snapshot was created.

Note: When deleting a volume snapshot all data stored on the snapshot will be permanently lost.
