VBoxManage CloneHD GUI now supports VirtualBox 4.2.12

Posted 12. May 2013 12:09 in Tools

I was contacted by a Canadian user the other day with a request for a new version of VBoxManage CloneHD GUI. The old release only supported VirtualBox 3.x and since there's been some changes to the functionality in VirtualBox 4.x, it seemed like it was time for an updated version. 

So I've spent the last couple of days adding features, fixing bugs and testing functionality. The end result is that the VBoxManage CloneHD GUI now supports VirtualBox 4.2.12, and you can now use the tool to change UUID of an existing VDI file too.

VBoxManage CloneHD GUI

I've been using Sun's VirtualBox software for a while now, and it irritated me that there wasn't an option in the GUI to handle the cloning of harddrives. If you want to do that (and it's a feature I use often) then you have to use it through the command line. Not really a huge problem, but for some people it is easier just doing it through a graphical interface instead. Since it seemed like noone else had made a GUI for it, I thought I might as well do it myself. I hope someone out there can use it.

I have built it upon VirtualBox v3.1.6, and currently only support the CloneHD parameter from VBoxManage. Read more about it here.
