  • [WS7.x] Snapshot grow of size

    HI


    I have a computer running Windows 7 SP1 Ultimate 64-bit and I installed WorkStation 7.x .


    I created a virtual machine with XP Pro SP3 (saving it in a single vmdk file pre-allocated) and I have used it for 4 months without any problems creating some snapshot.


    Now, I noticed that, when I use this VM, these snapshots grow of size. Why?


    THANKS

    Well because all the new data is written within the snapshot.
    Basically don't use snapshots for extended period of times. Just use it to test applications, patches and so forth, and if it works, delete the snapshot.
