Access virtual Drive in XP mode from windows 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I upgraded windows 7 64 bit system that had XP mode installed with Virtual drive to windows 10.  Since XP mode is no longer supported I installed Virtualbox 5.0 and set up Virtual XP machine.  I now need files that were on virtual drive in XP mode.  Is there anyway to access those files from windows 10?  Thanks

  • C:\Windows.old folder might have those files if you remember the exact location.

    Most of the core system in Windows 10 is essentially Windows 8.
