What happens to the data after performing a virsh-snapshot delete of the most current snapshot for a domain? Does it merge the data into the existing qcow2 file? Will any new data as of the snapshot creation date (create with virsh-snapshot create) be lost? Where is this snapshot data stored? virsh 0.9.10.
