Disabling snapshots

I've got a ReadyNAS RN316 with 3 x 6TB drives and I would like to disable snapshots, is this possible? We are storing large files on these drives and then removing them using it as a temp space for media and it's annoying having to remove old snapshots so my file manager doesn't complain about a lack of space.

Re: Disabling snapshots

Yes. Snapshots are enabled/disabled on a per share basis.

Go to Shares > Shares, click on the Share, click settings and set the Snapshot Schedule to Never.

Do note that when volume usage exceeds 95% old automatic snapshots will automatically be deleted.
