This is inside the VM, at the OS level?

Do you just want copy files and folders?

Could you transfer across the network, using robocopy ?

no apart from files and folders I have applications like SCCM, SCOM, back up exec,and applications run on .net framework

robocopy can be used with files and folders , how to work with other application migration

If it is inside the VM simply copy over the vmdks(and create a new machine)  or the entire machine can be copied .. this is the nice part about VM's They don't care where they are being run from..

that is if it as at the host level you want to change the o/s .. you might be able to upgrade the operating systems if the o/s's are supported in the upgrade scenario.
