Windows 7: VirtualBox VMS - Missing file vmxp.vbox

VirtualBox VMS - Missing file vmxp.vbox

Installed VirtualBox with XP and Office 03 and used it several times
Then, yesterday it failed to allow me to copy / paste from my other (Windows7 Office 10) environment.

Today it simply fails with the message
Runtime error opening c:\Users\Henry\VirtualBox VMs\vmxp\vmxp.vbox for reading: 102 (File not found)
I still have the downloaded file "VirtualBox-4.1.8-75467-Win.exe"
Would very much like to avoid reinstalling VirtualBox, XP and Office03

Is there possibly a way to get it from another source (BTW: it is not in my Recycle Bin)

Advice appreciated

The .vbox file is a XML based description of the Virtual Machine you are running. You can re-create the .vbox file by creating a new VM machine within Virtual Box and then attaching an existing vm disk (.vdi) to it and you will get it back again in working order.
