    Moving A VM

    Is it possible to move a VM from my /home partition to another partition on my computer.
    Reason I am asking is the new partition is larger than what i have available in my /home directory.

    I have had no trouble moving VMware VMs.

    I've moved them from one computer to another... One time from an Intel-based one to an AMD, without any issues. One time I had to let Windows get another authorazation because the hardware had changed so much.

    Go for it.
