I've keep a few VM's in different stages.

First one is base OS with basic utils and settings the way I like, then take a snapshot
clone that (after snapshot) and add dev utils, database tools, libs (but not the databases), snap shot
clone that, install & pref-set visual studio, snapshot
clone that, snapshot, add local databases, snapshot, do work, occasional snapshots (so backup only needs the last snapshot file)

the last [pre-clone] snapshot on each machine, (particularly the first one), provides for testing on a fully clean settings (untainted by something quick-modded during dev/app install and not recorded in the installer script/notes, i.e. reg setting/dll often overlooked) and fully clean/restore it after for the next time.
... if say added some garbage extension/setting to vs, can snap back to the clean vs
... if say database upgrades, can test the upgrade. if wanted few months later roll back snaps/clones and re-build "new machines" using it as the base version.

lately moving from vs17 to 19: cloned pre-vs and installed/pref set 19 - fully clean, no 17 baggage issues
(and just in case of problems kept the vs17 ones around till I was sure I could ditch them.)

think like those guys like linus on youtube when they test soft/hardware: they have a store room of different machines to pick from - some clean/re-cleaned, some [part] modded, some old, some different o/s....)
