I made a snapshot in VirtualBox, how do I revert back to it?

share|improve this question

If you select the virtual machine in the left hand column, you should see a tab called "snapshots" on the left.

Simply click the snapshot you want and then launch it!

If looking to restore the snapshot via the terminal:

VBoxManage snapshot <virtual-machine-name> restore <snapshot-name>
