Your virtual machine files are stored in one folder. You can move the folder to drive 😧 freely.

I have copied the virtual machine to drive 😧
Also I changed the directory path.

But i can't under "Virtual Machine Settings / Options / Advanced / file locations" not Change the configuration path!

Thanks

Before you leave your home in Georgia
and move to the Frisco Bay
delete the entries in the library.
Then you simply doubleclick each vmx-file in the new path once and that will fill the library again.

More advanced users can also edit the inventory.vmls but the result will be the same.
