MSFT finally talks snapshots in detail

Finally, after a long time of answering forums posts and my own posts here.

Ben Armstrong (or VirtualPC Guy fame) has posted a series of articles regarding snapshots and snapshot behavior.

Please, read and enjoy.  These are not going away any time soon.

Where are my snapshot files?

What happens when I delete a snapshot?

What happens when a snapshot is being merged?

Why does it take so long to delete a virtual machine with snapshots?

What happens if I start a virtual machine that is merging snapshot files?

Should virtual machine snapshots be used in production?
