I want to backup a shutdown VirtualBox VM. When I export it as appliance in ova-format, are snapshots included then? Is it possible to go back to an older snapshot?

Is there a better way to make backups?

Just backup all of the virtual machine data in question, its seperated by folders, so it should be easy. Be sure to get the Virtual Box configuration file also. – Ramhound Oct 23 '12 at 11:09
Thank you. That works. There's a menu entry "add virtual machine". I didn't know that. But I think I have to use the same directory structure. – chris Oct 24 '12 at 8:05
