New to replication, can anyone tell me if i can just delete snapshot folders from the OS? or should these be deleted by the agent?

Scheduled Snapshot (sql 2005)- every night
Scheduled push to subscriber (from sql 2005 - to sql 2000) every night following snapshot gen.

The files which are large just keep being created - should i manually delete them?

We had a problem with this where the agent wasnt allowed to delete the snapshots on our SAN because of permission issues that we couldnt resolve. So the replication job kept failing. When I went in and manually removed the snapshots (initially just renamed them), the job completed normally. Then later I went in and deleted them.

Of course this was for transactional replication and the initial snapshots created, so ymmv.
