    Hi there

    have a backup copy of the VMdisk files -- then just trash the current VM, copy back the previous virtual disk files and power on the VM again. Both methods are equally good IMO.

    If re-copying the virtual disk and the VM is a Windows one - ensure you say I MOVED It rather than I Copied it if a box appears (does using VMware -- not sure about vbox) - if you don't do this Windows could have activation problems as you might have to re-activate Windows.
    Wassup jimbo,

    I think just simply coping the vm folder then deleting the main one and pasting the copy should do it. Its the simplest way i think.

    One thing thats not right is that my vm is runnning slowly. I dont know what to do. What do you suggest?

    You know what? This is what I want which is easier...

    Before something goes wrong with my guest o/s, I'd want to make a backup of it. Is it better to copy or clone a guest o/s in my case?
    VirtualBox lets you create snapshots of VM (it's like freezing current disk in time) you can revert VM to snapshot and it will restore OS to time when snapshot was taken, can have more then one snapshot taken at different times it's faster to create then clone and takes less disk space.

    Yeah I'm just doing simple copying of my vm image file as a backup, thats all. Very simple.
