    It is useful to have the SmartGuard system managing snaphots and maintaining a maximum of N Smartguard snapshots at any given time. However, sometimes it's desirable to take snapshots at critical points in time. Currently this can only be done by manually taking a non-smartguard snapshots, which leaves the user with a mix of smartguard snaphots (which are automatically recycled) and manual snapshots (which must be manually deleted).

    It would be very useful to be able to manually take a SmartGuard snapshot. Or, alternately, to "tag" particular snapshots as being managed by smartguard or not managed by smartguard.

    I cannot find in my Parallels 13 manual anything indicating that manual snapshots will not be recycled by Smartguard. Can anyone confirm that this is true? I want to be able to save snapshots from key development stages until the development is complete, while using Smartguard to guard against daily issues.

    I do the same. Only the smartguard snapshots are recycled; the manual ones are left untouched.
