What is the proper way to do the following. I've just installed a new clean operating system. I want to have different "versions" so I can keep the clean one ready to clone for the future, and then as I install different apps and tools, I can have different working copies based on what I'm doing at the time (developing for the job, developing games, just browsing, etc.).
I tried doing something with snapshots, but it made me clear out all my saved snapshots when I upgraded to a newer version of vbox ... so I was wondering what's the proper way to support the scenario above?
