Hello @codifyrahul ,

Snapshots are independent of Droplets, which means the Snapshots will still be on your account. You can destroy the Snapshots by clicking on Images section and then scrolling to the Snapshots. Select the desired Snapshot and press “More”, you will find an option to destroy the Snapshot.

You can also use the API call to destroy the Snapshot. Refer to below link for more details:

Hope this helps!
