My Virtual Box VM died yesterday and I have files (QB and text documents) that I need from said dead VM. I have tried rebooting the dead VM and it just makes my computer crash and won't move past the "loading Windows" stage. I have created a new VM in which I would like to try and retrieve my files from the dead VM.
I have very little experience with Virtual Box. I use a MacBook that runs the latest version of El Capitan and I use Windows 7 as the OS in the VM. I know this question has been asked/answered, but what I have found is old and the tools are no longer available. Like I said I am a novice at this, so I don't understand a lot of what I have found in my online searches, especially the VB manual.
Any help, direction, tools or instructions anyone could provide would be most appreciated. I am not looking forward to re-creating any of my lost data from those files on the dead VM.
Thank you so much for your input.
Software/Hardware used: MacBook Pro, El Capitan, Windows 7
