Hi,

I'm running vmware esx and virtual center.

I have a snapshot of a windows system, that has since been changed.

I need to revert to the previous 'snapshot' to test a previous setting......although I ultimately would like to have the system where it is now.

Is there a way I can revert into the past, then jump back to where I am currently?

Cloning the system as it is seems to get corrupted.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

This could be possible only if you take a backup before you revert back to the snapshot. if you revert back to snapshot 1 from snapshot 2 and you would like to move to snapshot 2 later that is not possible.

The only way is to create a full clone of it and revert back to the snapshot on the clone and check for what ever configuration changes you wanted to confirm and make them on the actual machine.
