You can restore the virtual machine to the specific time when you took a snapshot. The current disk, settings, and memory states are discarded, and the virtual machine reverts to the disk, settings, and memory states of the snapshot.


In the Commands section of the virtual machine’s Summary tab, expand the Snapshot command (if it is not already expanded) and click Manage Snapshots.


In the Snapshots for <virtual_machine> window, select the snapshot to revert to, and click Revert to snapshot.


Click Revert in the confirmation dialog box.

You can also configure a virtual machine to automatically revert to a snapshot or ask you whether to revert to the snapshot whenever you power off the virtual machine. See Set Snapshot Power Off Options.
