Remove differencing disks for a committed save

Rolling back a committed save (i.e. removing all the differencing disks made with that save) on a lab with many VMs is a time consuming chore and comes with the risk of forgetting to remove a disk from a VM, or removing two diff disks from a VM by mistake.

Who would most benefit from this idea? Lab Developers or Lab Authors
What is the problem you are trying to solve?

Add a function for lab developers to remove all diff disks associated with a specific save in one swift action.

See attached mockup.

A way to undo this removal would probably be helpful too (maybe add an "undo" or "re-add diff disks" button similar to the remove button with the auto-generated comment"

    Thank you for this idea. We have an initiative for self serve disk management optimization. Will link this into the initiative.
