Windows 7: Microsoft Windows_7_64-bit Edition.vbox

Microsoft Windows_7_64-bit Edition.vbox

In "My Documents" I have a file called "Microsoft Windows_7_64-bit Edition.vbox" which contains a large 655Gb virtual disk file.

I am not sure how this got here, it maybe something to do with my upgrade to Windows 10 and revert to Windows 7 as had problems with windows 10 some months ago.

My question is can I delete this file without incurring any problems?

Hello Richchad,

Did you ever have VirtualBox installed and created a virtual machine named that in it?

Thanks for the reply Brink.

I seem to recall that I did install something like that, can't think why but maybe it was recommended before doing Windows 10 upgrade?

Does that mean I can delete this file safely as guess it isn't needed now?
