ResolutionNot shutting down the virtual machine correctly is the most common cause of missing files. If your virtual machine is not shut down properly, it doesn’t get a chance to save its settings and store information in the appropriate folders. Imagine never filing a piece of paper from your desk - your desk would eventually overflow, and you would never find anything.
- Prevention is the key! Consider your virtual machine as a normal Windows computer, and turn it off as such.
- Select Turn Off Computer from the Windows Start menu.
- A Turn Off Computer window will be displayed. Click the Turn Off button.
