A key advantage of virtual hard disks is their portability. Because the virtual hard disks are stored as files on the host system or a remote computer, you can move them easily to a new location on the same computer or to a different computer.

For example, you can use Workstation Pro on a Windows host system to create virtual hard disks, move the disks to a Linux computer, and use the disks with Workstation Pro on a Linux host system.
