virtualbox - linux guest - vboxmanage clonehd | snapshot


Hi-

I looked at snapshots and it seems that if you want to back vbox up after making a snapshot you have to clonehd both the non attached .vdi and the attached snapshot .vdi.

The attached snapshot .vdi is of type difference.

1) Do you run out of space when both attached/non-attached files added together equal the size limit of your storage space allocated in vbox settings and fedora lvm setup?

2) what is the preferred method in general - clone everything and do no snapshots OR clone non attached .vdi and any attached snapshot .vdi

What do most people who work with lots of virtual machines do?

thx.

jim
