VMs are the Answer

By | July 16, 2019

Ya’ll need to look into virtual machines. It’s very, very easy to do this with VMs. Virtual machines and their hypervisors all support some version of snapshotting (though the names differ). Here’s how to use them in Hyper-V.

This tech has been around for a dozen years, widely available, so isn’t new at all. I’m surprised by how little people keep up with things like this. I use VMs, snapshots, etc. extensively.

If you don’t feel like you have the tech knowledge to handle VMs, Windows 10 supports system restore points that are also very easy to use and are nearly-identical to what this person is requesting. Mac OS has Time Machine which does nearly the same thing.

So…I see people request this sort of thing all the time and it already exists and has for a very long while. Weird.
