How to move VirtualBox VM: to another computer, drive

To transfer virtual machines to another host computer or drive you simply have to use the import/export feature of VirtualBox. We will take you through the procedure in the article below.

  • Open VirtualBox

  • Click on the File menu > Export appliance
  • Select the virtual machines you want to add to the appliance:
  • Click on Next.
  • Select where you want to save the .ova file
  • Click on Next > Export.

From there you can transfer this appliance to another computer or drive and import the latter (File > Import appliance).
