Snapshots, otherwise known as recovery points, are used to protect VM data. The snapshots are stored in Recovery Services vaults. When it comes time to repair or rebuild a virtual machine, a restore can be taken from any of these saved recovery points. Restoring from a recovery point, or snapshot, allows you to create a brand-new VM, which is a point-in-time representation of the backed-up VM. You can also restore individual disks and use the template that comes with the process to customize the restored VM. Of course, individual file recovery is always an option, as well.
