I'm currently running on vista 64 home premium, using virtual box 32bit (there isnt a win64 release to my knowledge)

I'm soon upgrading my host system to windows 7 64 home premium, is there a way to backup all my virtualbox setups, so I can just re-import them when I have upgraded my host OS?

Just copy the folder that you keep all of the VMs in. When you reinstall just copy the folder back and point VirtualBox at it.

Thanks. For Vista users VB puts them under : C:\Users\James\.VirtualBox by default – user155695 Oct 24 '09 at 11:55
