Deleting virtual software layers

To remove a virtual software layer from a computer, you delete it. When you delete a layer, all the data in the layer is deleted. We recomend creating a new reset point and then exporting a backup copy of layer before deletion. This backup copy lets you quickly reimport the application to the current state if you decide to install it again.

You can delete an application layer locally or remotely. To delete an application layer remotely, you can use any of the interfaces that manage virtual software layers.
