Having realised I had setup my folders poorly I reorganised and deleted several of TB of items. I still though have the snapshots. Is there any way to delete snapshots without deleting or removing the folder to which they relate? Thanks.

Having asked the above question I discovered by judicious and temporary alteration of the Snapshot and retention settings I could remove all and restart. Should have thought about it more before asking the question.

You have to go into snapshot replication, click the shared folder, click the snapshot button with down arrow, then click snapshot list. From the snapshot list you can delete the snapshots
