    Hi All

    Quick query - when I was using Virtualbox, I set up a hard disk that was immutable - i.e. it would read and boot, but wouldn't save anything after the session - as soon as it was closed / shut down, it would revert back to the read only disk image.

    Is there any way to achieve the same thing in Parallels? I've tried chflags uchg [name of disk image] but all that results in is Parallels being unable to read the disk to boot from it.

    Cheers
    Nick

    Aah, that looks like it would do exactly what I want.

    I'm currently on Parallels 14, will have to look into upgrading to 15, perhaps on the subscription model to get Pro.

    Thanks mmika!

    Cheers
    Nick
