    What steps to follow to save the VM which I made with Virtualbox application in Mac?

    I recently did the setting up of Windows virtual machine in my Mac with the help of Virtual box after facing so many issues and right now I need to run a full recovery in my Mac and somehow I need to retain the virtual machine to use again after the recovery. So is it possible to save it somewhere as backup? What should I do for that? Kindly give me the steps to follow?

    Hello, Guest
    It is easy to backup your VM for future use.

    Just get ready an external drive with 10-20GB of free space.

    Now turn off your VM and navigate to this folder. ->Users/Home/Virtual Machines/<VM name>/

    [FONT=Consolas, Menlo, Monaco, Lucida Console, Liberation Mono, DejaVu Sans Mono, Bitstream Vera Sans Mono, Courier New, monospace, serif]copy all its contents.

    Now you can recover your system and Install VMware in the new machine and Copy the backed up content to the same folder as you have copied last time and Then start VMware software and select open Virtual machine. Select the folder you have saved your backed up VM and it will start booting again.
