When VMware Snapshots go wrong – Snapshot Hell!

this is the worst case of Snapshot Hell, I’ve ever seen! It’s not the largest snapshot, the total is only approx 83GB in snapshots, but the number of snapshot files!

A Total of 79 snapshots per virtual machine disk, see screenshots (I’ve obscured the server name for privacy!)

According to this VMware Knowledge Base article the maximum number of snapshots is 32 in a snapshot chain.
