restic-forget - Remove snapshots from the repository
restic forget [flags] [snapshot ID] [...]
The "forget" command removes snapshots according to a policy. Please note that this command really only deletes the snapshot object in the repository, which is a reference to data stored there. In order to remove this (now unreferenced) data after 'forget' was run successfully, see the 'prune' command.
