I have just installed a virtualbox 3.10 on my system Ubuntu Linux 9.04.
My HDD is partitioned as follow: System 12 GB (logical), Swap 3 GB, home 58 GB (extended). FS is Ext4.
Looking at the vbox default preferences:
Default Hard Disk folder: /home/nomnex/.VirtualBox/HardDisks
Default Machine folder: /home/nomnex/.VirtualBox/HardDisks
What are these 2 folders (I assume Hard Disk folder is the location of the virtualbox)? So, the virtual box(ex) I create will be in" home/my profile" folder.
If I want to have the Virtualbox in home but outside my profile, how to I proceed. And is there a benefit doing so?
I recall in Windoz the default virtualbox was located by default on System (C:). It gave me a problem since my (C:) was full. I needed to create a Virtualbox on (D:). The answer was:
Use Virtual Media Manager then create new HD in second partition (D:). For best results, change "VirtualBox - Settings | Default Hard Folder" to a folder in D:. Then reconfigure your configuration for a specific guest to add the second HD
I couldn't understand the [...]Then reconfigure your configuration for a specific guest to add the second HD[...] part, though.
