Should snapshots be deleted when the associated AMI is deregistered?

I have found that we had several thousand snapshots created by Ylastic backups that were not deleted when the AMIs were deregistered as part of the scheduled tasks. Is this supposed to happen? Is there some way to ensure that it does?

    Apologies for the late reply. This discussion was moved to spam by the filter. Sorry about that!

    Could you please give me some info on this task? Are these recent snapshots for the task?
