You need to destroy the snapshot completely - But if you want to selectively
delete from a snapshot, I think you can clone it, then promote the clone,
then destroy the snapshot, then rm something from the clone and then
snapshot the clone back to the original name, and then destroy the clone.


BTW, since snapshots are listed in chronological order, it is distinctly
possible the above might cause unintended consequences for snapshot scripts
/ autosnapshot / whatever.

Most people in your situation would simply destroy the snapshot and never
look back.  That's the easy thing to do.
