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 ?

You will need to re-install the applications.

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.
