Why virtual machine images are excluded from Time Machine backups by default
Authored by: Westside guy on Jul 16, '12 11:54:50AM

Yeah, it wouldn't take long to fill up even a multi-terabyte drive if a person were including their virtual machines in their Time Machine backups.

I only keep one backup copy of my VMs. I don't even bother with rsync - I just, every so often, manually drag a VM over to the backup disk (which creates a copy, obviously). Some VMs are only testbeds, so those don't get backed up at all.
