  3. Select the Storage Vault containing the backed-up data and click "Next"
  4. In the restore wizard click the 'Delete' button
  5. From the list of available snapshots, can select one or more to remove, and then click 'Delete'
  6. Once the removal of the snapshot is complete, you need to run a retention pass on the vault if you want to immediatly clean up the deleted snapshots from the storage vault.
