That's odd, when I tried to create a snapshot I was told there wasn't enough unallocated space on the LVM, I've only used like ~30MB of the partition (488GB total). I tried to create a 10GB snapshot thingy

VSS doesn't require more than one partition. It does everything on the same partition, and you can delete old snapshots with impunity
