I'm on VM4.1 and I've gone into the datastore and copied all the files from a vm into another folder. I just can't seem to find how to create templates or use a snapshot to create another vm quickly. Now that I have this folder with all the files from a vm that works how do I use it? I can't seem to get it to show up in vCenter.

Standard license.

This is the only software I have to work with so upgrading is not possible.

Alternatively how do I create templates for provisioning? I just can't seem to find it on this version.
