Use VirtualBox.  You can take a 'snapshot' of a running virtual
machine, either from the GUI or from the CLI (vboxmanage snapshot ...)
and restore it later.

This requires NO changes to R.  Snapshots can be restored on
another machine of the same kind with the same system software.

VirtualBox is free.  Parallels is (just) under USD100.
