Set up a group of containers in lxd running in snap on Debian stretch. Had some major issues so as part of that I un-installed snap. So I re-installed, initially not able to, but after a code modification I was able to complete the re-installation. As my thinking on how to use lxd has changed I wanted to have a much larger space for my containers so I chose to not re-use the previous container space.
How do I transfer those container spaces to the new area so that the previous containers are available for use?
(If this is unclear please ask and I will try to describe differently!!)
