I backed up my .vdi files of some Ubuntu VMs and wanted to restore to a new computer. I thought that by using existing vdi files, I would be able to create a new VM or import it somehow to recreate the VM I had on my old computer. Doesn't turn out to be the case.
I'm on Virtualbox 6.0.8 and when I click Machine>New and go through all those steps and choose 'Use an existing virtual hard disk file' that points to my old VM's vdi, it would create a machine with a brand new install of Ubuntu. I can't access my old data anymore. If I'm using an existing vdi, shouldn't that mean I'm using all my old data to recreate this machine? What am I missing?
