Yep, snapshots are definitely the way to go. I always make sure I take a
snapshot of my session before I embark on some big change that I may
want to completely scrap later. I think that copying and restoring the
.ardour file manually would achieve the same thing, but it's definitely
easier to do it directly within Ardour.

I was hesitant to use snapshots at first because I didn't understand how
they worked, but as the name implies, they're just a copy of your
session made at a specific time. Snapshots don't fork your project, so
if you load a snapshot, make some changes, and then save, the changes
are saved to your main .ardour file -- a save will never update the
snapshot, though you can of course make more snapshots if you want to
save changes without overwriting your main .ardour file.

Thanks
