How to compare the files differences between 2 virtualbox snapshots?

Best regards

You could mount both virtual drives and compare them using a diff tool.

Thread mentions "It works only on fix sized VDI-files, without having any snapshots!", unfortunately it is not possible to do using ImDisk – Stanislav Jul 21 '11 at 10:25
Caution never tried: Clone the drive twice and collapse each snapshot down, then you should be able to mount them. – Chris Nava Jul 21 '11 at 14:39
