To Exporting Hyper V Snapshots or merge them?
Posted on 2010-08-24
I have a virtual machine running with a tree of three snapshots. For a more clear picture, from the original VHD I have three layers of snapshots. I want a quick and effective way to merge those. Can I export the current snapshot? If I do that will it capture all the information in the other snapshots and original vhd?
I have not tried to merge them, because several posts online say they have had trouble with merging multiple snapshots so I was looking to just export the last snapshot and then remount the resulting VHD. If this is a bad idea, can you provide a quality, step by step process for merging the VHD’s?
All the snapshots are within 10 days from the original VHD.
