I wanted to create a Linux VM using Oracle VM Virtual box. The problem is that as soon as I restart the VM it restores to it original state. This is what I don't want as I lose all the test results for which I had created the VM.
Virtual Box does let me take snapshots periodically but I don't want to use snap shots.
What I am looking for is that once I create a VM I should be able to use it as a physical Linux machine. Is there a way to configure Virtual Box to prevent it from restoring the VM to it's original form.
