VirtualBox: Using snapshots to avoid excessive TimeMachine actitvity
Authored by: Supp0rtLinux on Jan 19, '12 08:44:42AM

A better solution: allow TM to make a one time backup of the VirtualBox. After you confirmed its there, exclude the VBox from the Time Machine backups, but INCLUDE the snapshots. Now, if you lose everything, you can restore the original full backup of the VBox and then restore the snapshots to get back to a working state. The individual snapshots are very small and only have the changes in them.

Until such time as the original backup is deleted for space?
