Description

Hello, I was playing with snapshots and figure out, that there is no option to flatten image also with latest state. When I create snaphost, in datastore is created new disk, for ex '1'. So I have

.snap/0 - poiting to original image - so "snapshot" id = 0
.snap/1 - snapshot id = 1
*.snap/2 - new image mouted to VM

I can rever to 0 or 1, which is OK.

I can flatten image to 0 or 1, but not to file 2, because this lates image is not a snapshot.

So there is need for adding at the end of snapshots list on emore checkbox with id = 2 and name something like "Latest state" or better, new buttons:

  • Flatten - which flatten to latest image without need for selecting any snapshot
  • Flatten to specific snapshot - which is basicly what we hve now

Or second concept:

Enable flatten button also if no checkbox is selected and consider this as flattening to latest image.
