What version of CloudStack are you running?

I recall (quite a long time ago), there was a bug where volumes and snapshots weren't getting
cleaned up correctly. 
If I recall correctly, that was somewhere around 4.2.

- Si

Thank you it's correct :) , but now I have another question..

 From console of CloudStack I have deleted a snapshot, on the database the status is changed
in Destroyed but the file it's stil on secondary storage:

ls -ltr d8736bdb-22c6-46fe-a27e-0ee5dc99a867.vhd
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1271296512 Mar 11 04:02 d8736bdb-22c6-46fe-a27e-0ee5dc99a867.vhd

Also in snapshots view sometimes the status is allocated...but what does it mean ?

Best Regards

Hi Gian,

If you run the following query in MySQL and check the column “install_path” you will find
the location of snapshot file in secondary storage:
<select * from cloud.snapshot_store_ref;>

I hope that it helps you.
