Unregister replica and delete version

I have a check out replica that was not used, so I'm trying to clean up my versions and get rid of the replica version. I'm using SDE personal w/ SQL Express. I have several versions and each version is periodically checked out for editing.

Assume I have VersionA which is checked out as Replica1. What is a good workflow to get rid of replica1 if no edits are made? I can go to version manager and delete replica1 then go to manage replicas and unregister  replica1. Does my order of operations make a difference here? I know I can just check in a database with no edits and achieve the desired results but that seems to be the long way around the issue.

What exactly does unregistering a replica mean? Can't seem to find this in the help.
