why the do you want to keep the solidfire snapshots when removed?

isn't this the same as below?

isn't this the same as above?
Also when having cleaned all snapshots that are not for solidfire I would
first do a check as your mess should be largely cleaned by then.
and if a few snapshots still jump out better investigate those to see if
you can find any root cause for the failure.
