[one-users] snapshots and saveas

Hi Pawel,

the 'saveas' snapshot saves the disk as a new disk - you will find it then in the same datastore as the original disk. When you want to use such a disk, you must prepare a new template for it.

The second snapshot type on the other hand snapshosts the VM in its current state - both the disk and memory. You can then revert the VM to that snapshoted state. But all the snapshoted information are kept only localy (part of VM image) - stopping, migrating  or shuting down the VM also deletes these snaphosts.

I wonder what is the difference between snapshot being made in those two places (I know what is he difference between hot and deffered though).
