There is the:

 btrfs subvolume delete <subvolume>

command for deleting snapshots, but is there any solution if you need to delete a single directory from 60 snapshots?

Not possible with rm -rf it will say Read-only file system.



Maybe your snapshot is read only. Try to enable read/write using the following command:

btrfs property set -ts /path/to/snapshot ro false

Also, double check than when mounting the snapshot it is not mounted in read-only mode (ro mount option)
