Discussion in 'sandboxing & virtualization' started by Az7, Jul 19, 2011.
I use Virtual Box and appreciate that they keep improving it. A feature I'd really like to see is the ability increase the size of the VM in conjunction with cloning/copying it. I don't know if that's possible, but a VM fills up just like a physical disk and being able to increase the size would be a real plus.
Can one install 4.1 over the old 4.0.x? If not, and you must uninstall the old, how does one save the VM that you have created?
I installed over 4.0x, no problem. If you were to uninstall it first I don't believe it would delete your VM, but to be safe I'd find the VM and move it to a different folder before uninstalling. Note there is also an update for the USB 2.0 virtual adapter - things won't work without it.
Just uninstall your vm's will be kept.
I used to install over the top but it caused issues and required multiple reboots on windows 7 to repair the install and reinstall the new.
I installed over and it's fine for me.
I installed over and it's fine here as well. As for uninstall deleting your VM I have never seen this happen be it VirtualBox, VirtualPC, or VMWare.
