VirtualBox - How to access your virtual drives?

Ask a question



The hard disks of your virtual machines are located as described below (by default):
  • For Windows Vista and 7: C:\Users\username\.VirtualBox\HardDisks
  • For Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\Username\.VirtualBox\HardDisks
  • For GNU/Linux: ~$/.VirtualBox/HardDisks
  • From there you can copy the files that are in the directory on an external media (backup your virtual drives).
