Create a snapshot

If your virtual machine is operating perfectly in a desired configuration, you may want to save the setup before it breaks because of a software upgrade or configuration change. Taking a snapshot of the box preserves the current state so you can return to it as often as you want.

  1. Right-click on the box in the collection view and select Properties, or if the box is running, click the menu (settings) button in the header bar and select Properties.

  2. Click the Snapshots tab.

  3. Click + below the Snapshots list.

A snapshot is saved reflecting the current state of your box. It appears in the list.
