Ticket #3960 (closed enhancement: fixed)
enhancement: optionally allow disk snapshots to be co-located with parent disk

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
I prefer housing my virtual disks on the physical disks which have the most room (not within my user profile). When I create a snapshot of the virtual machine, the snapshot always resides in ~/.VirtualBox/Machine/*/Snapshots regardless of where the parent virtual disk resides.
The feature request is to create the snapshot disk in the same directory as the parent disk, and in the optimal outcome, incrementally name the snapshot disk based on the basename of the parent disk. For example, /mnt/disk.vmdk would become /mnt/disk_01.vmdk and subsequent snapshots would be named /mnt/disk_02.vmdk.
I can appreciate that not everyone would like this behavior, so a checkbox in the preferences (or even at snapshot time) may be appropriate.
Thank you for your consideration.
