Clone and Move Virtual Machines in VirtualBox

I’m a big fan of VirtualBox. The tool enables me to extend a machine beyond its normal capabilities, test operating systems without getting invasive with my host, and kick the tires on various software titles without installing them on my production machine. But sometimes I get a virtual machine up and running and want to copy it (to move it to another machine or to have a second instance to test); when that time comes, I don’t want to completely re-install the operating system and get it to the state I need. In this situation, I clone the virtual machine.

When you clone a drive, you make an exact copy of the virtual machine that can be used on either the same host or moved to another VirtualBox host. The process of cloning and moving a virtual machine is now easy in VirtualBox.
