Copy – Clone Virtual Box Hard Disk

If you have setup a virtual box disk and want to duplicate it so you can run more than one at a time (which is very useful when creating and testing social websites) you can run

VBoxManage clonevdi ~/.VirtualBox/HardDisks/ubuntu.vdi ~/.VirtualBox/HardDisks/ubuntu2.vdi

That will create an exact copy but with a different UUID (which needs to be unique if running multiple boxes on the same… box).
