What are the snapshots, and how can I get rid of them

... Or use them.

We have projects that we see many snapshots (up to 75 or more) when we examine the project using the server manager.  Some of these go back years.  How were they created in the first place?  We feel this adds to bloat in the iCDB database, and may result in performance issues.

We have noticed if we take a schematic and paste all the sheets into a new project the iCDB.dat file goes from 6 Mbytes to 1.1 Mbyte, and then only the DXD snapshot exists.  Whenever you run any tools (partlister, crossreference, packager) the only snapshot used is DXD.
