Sorry if this doesn't go here (please move if it needed).

How can you move a VM from one PC to another PC? The VMs in question were created with the free VMWare player (the latest version).

I'm going to be getting a new work PC, and don't want to have to re-create the VMs again, if possible.

Suggestions? Is it just as easy as copying the folder where the VMs are stored or is there more involved steps?

Just simply copy all the files and to any external drive and then move to another drive

I use VBox and clone then move VM's almost weekly. Does VMware have a clone feature? Bit for byte, nothing is easier or faultless
