    Help with VM n Checkpoints pls!!


    Hi,

    I am new to the forum and am trying to use Hyper V-Manager to create a VM that I can try some beta software functionality.

    My requirements:
    1. The VM should be able to connect to the internet.
    2. The VM should be able to access the shared folders on the host machine
    3. The VM should be able to access the DVD disc drive on the host
    4. I should be able to reset the VM to its original state (i.e. prior to beta software installation) such that no trace of the install remains

    I made the VM and was somehow able to configure it to accomplish requirements 1 to 3 but even though I created a checkpoint (standard checkpoint) prior to the beta software install, the beta software registry entries are still there after I reverted back to the checkpoint that I created. Could someone please advise what I may have done wrong and what is the proper process for this?

    Thanks!!

    Can you detail the steps you took in creating a checkpoint?

    I created a series of checkpoints during installing and configuring new VM. I don't need the old checkpoints now the VM is configured and these checkpoints seem to be linked to some large .ahvdx files. How do you safely delete unneeded old checkpoints and their related files to just retain the latest working operational VM state?

    I thought that you could easily disable checkpoints, and they would be removed, but I may be incorrect. I haven't tried running a VM on my desktop for a while now, as it is just simply not powerful enough to run VMs *and* do other things I need and want to do - gaming being the primary problem.
