guest from one user to another with virtual box

Dear Experts:

I have insetalled the virtual box on cetos 5.5 but i should have installed the guest on some other real user account but by mistake i have installed it from the root user account. Is it possible to copy or move the virtual box guest from root user account to the some other real account in the same system. Please suggest. Thanks.

By default VirtualBox stores all settings and VM items in the users ~/.VirtualBox folder.  If there is only one VM and the intended user has not used VirtualBox before, just move this directory from the root's folder to the user's folder and chown all files and sub-directories to the new user.
