    I have a Windows 10 VM running on Parallels. My host OS is OSX.
    I would like to give a snapshot of my VM to someone else, who is also running Windows 10 on OSX.
    The folder with the entire VM, `Windows 10.pvm` is 33GB, so I can't share that.
    I looked in `Windows 10.pvm/Snapshots` and there are several files ending in `.dat`, `.mem`, `.png`, `.pvi`, `.pvc, `.sav`.
    Can I share just some of these files in order for the other person to get my snapshot?
    If not, which files do I need to give to the other person such that he will have my snapshot?

    Hello @OctavianT , It is not possible to share Snapshots.

    That seems really inconvenient. Is a fix coming soon?

    TyreneJ1, you can duplicate your VM then delete all unnecessary states, zip it and send to you colleagues.
