Hello
I am running MS Virtual PC 2007, I have windows 2008 server install on it.
I want to do some testing but I want to store a backup image (like restore point) so that I can go back to my previous image incase if I do something wrong.
Can you please let me know how to make an image/restore point in Virtual Image for Virtual PC

Unfortunately the snapshot feature is not available in VPC. You can instead use an undo disk and revert when ever you want back to that state.
