Do NOT store virtual machines on OneDrive cloud storage!  Always use local hard disk location.

Post a full directory listing of the folder where the files of that VM reside.

That’s the correct folder but some files are off the bottom of the screen, maybe capture a dir listing from a command prompt window.

  1. Open a Command Prompt
  2. Use the cd command to change to the folder when the VM files reside
  3. Enter the dir command, outputting the results to a text file: dir > myvmfilelist.txt
  4. Compress the txt file into a zip file
  5. Attach the zip file to your next reply
