What is an SNAPSHOT file?

File created by VMware ThinApp, a program used for bundling Windows programs into a single executable without any additional dependencies; created by ThinApp's system scanner and contains system information about all files on the local hard drive and registry entries.

More Information

SNAPSHOT files are used in the process of capturing dependencies created by installed applications. By comparing two snapshots, the software can tell which files and registry entries have changed since a particular application has been installed.
