Removed using the VMware Infracture Client GUI front end. Using ESXi
but this should be no difference.
No didn't just delete snapshot files.
Haven't had a problem removing snapshots before using the GUI frontend.
However probably only removed one at a time before.
Don't see what the difference would be using the command line however
I'll try the command line next time.
Also probably remove snapshots one by one.
If using the command line, does the guest need rebooting?
I've always found it a necessity rebooting the guest after a snapshot
removal with the GUI. Stops weird things happening.

Removed using the tools.
vmware-cmd /vmfs/volumes/datastore/guest/guest.vmx removesnapshots
or the guest tools?
If you use the vmware-cmd on an esx server you shouldn't see any
corruption of the underlying system, or at least I've never seen any
problems using that command.
