change Virtualbox default location for its Virtual Machines

mycomputer:~ nicola$ VBoxManage setproperty machinefolder /Volumes/kooldata/VBOx-Machines/

Since I’ve got two hard drives on my (mid.2010) MacBook Pro – a smaller System SSD one and a large, and slower, mechanical drive as ‘data storage’ – I wanted to move all the VirtualMachines created with Virtualbox on the second drive.

All I had to to was opening up my Terminal.app and givin’ the aforementioned command to successfully achieve my attempt.
