VirtualBox: Using snapshots to avoid excessive TimeMachine actitvity
Authored by: fulmar2 on Jan 19, '12 08:36:34AM

Hi -
Good hint. Here is how I handled the situation in case other people want options. I took my time machine volume and partitioned it so that one partition is called Time Machine, and the other partition is called Virtual Machines. I then made the best virtual machine I could, and copied it over to the Virtual Machine partition, and excluded the virtual machine from the backup. As far as I can tell, this accomplishes the same thing (i.e. in either solution, your changes will not be backed up - but the core VM is backed up). Hope that helps some.
