Ticket #9814 (closed defect: duplicate)
[mac] Default path for virtual machines directory is wrong
|Reported by:||dwt||Owned by:|
by default all virtual machines are stored in '~/VirtualBox VMs', which is very bad as it's directly in my home directory which gets very cluttered by all the applications just putting stuff in there.
It should instead be in ~/Library/Application Support/VirtualBox or in ~/Library/VirtualBox. Reasoning being, that I as the user shouldn't have to care to manually change anything in that folder. (Thas the reason they should also not be in in the Documents folder).
Oh, and while you're at it please by default mark the virtual machines as excluded from backups.
