Description

VirtualBox is not as dumb as VMWare to backup an entire machine and move it somewhere then get it back and running, because VMWare put all machine relative file in their own folder as default and using a machine base management,
.vmx:

for machine setup as VirtualBox XML.

.vmdk:

for harddrive as VirtualBox VDI.


in VMWare, folder will list like

  • TestXP/WinXP.vmx
  • TestXP/WinXP.vmdk

so I only have to copy TestXP to somewhere else, import vmx and it simply run. in VirtualBox I have to Add(register) VDI at Virtual Disk Manager then I can get my machine up.
