    Is it possible to exclude a virtual disk (2nd drive) when a snapshot is created? I don't want to loose the data on it when I go back to a snapshot.
    Maybe there is a better solution, if you want to have a 2nd drive on your VM, than a virtual disk? Shares don't work with the program I use. A boot camp drive you have to always delete from your VM before you create a snapshot.

    Can anyone tell me if it is possible to exclude a virtual disk (in VMWare that is possible, but I'd like to stick with parallels) or if it is planned in a future version?

    I have the same issue. I use a second disk as data partition. I often have to try out new software (and often my Windows 10 Start-Menu disappears), so I go back to a snapshot often. But this should not affect the data disk. Currently I just have to
    1. Safeguard all the data
    2. Go back
    3. Copy the data back
    Is it possible to exclude another mounted disk from snapshots?

    I have exactly the same issues (especially the annoying disappearing of start menu) and the possibility to exclude my data disk from snapshot could help me a lot.

    I am also looking for this feature.
