Firstly - I like snaps. Maybe you might consider me a Canonical fanboy - but I actually prefer the ease of snaps. However... Is there a way to remove old snaps? Specifically, prior versions of updated snaps...
As an example, if I run snap list, I get a list of the 13 snaps that are installed on my system, but if I run lsblk, I see duplicate snaps, with different version... as an example
loop3 7:3 0 32.4M 1 loop /snap/snapd/13640 loop5 7:5 0 42.2M 1 loop /snap/snapd/14066 loop6 7:6 0 217.4M 1 loop /snap/code/81 loop15 7:15 0 222.2M 1 loop /snap/code/82
So is there any reason why I would need to keep snapd/13640 or code/81? There are several others, but also since VSCode (the snap/code) updates monthly, if I leave it alone for a year, that snap alone will take up 2Gb of space, that I'm thinking is mostly unnecessary.
So, If I am able to, how do I go about removing (and unlinking from loop) these snaps. And if I'm not, why not?
Thanks in advance for any imparted knowledge!
