How can you uninstall VirtualBox from Mac OS X completely?
Deleting any app from your Mac OS X system might not be as easy as it seems to be from the first glance. You will need not only to remove the app from your machine; you should uninstall the program with all its supporting files and data to delete it completely.
Follow these simple step that will definitely make your uninstallation process quick and easy.
- Drag and drop the program to your Trash bin or visit Finder- Applications- Move to Trash, available in the context menu. Although the main app`s file is now deleted, all the tool`s virtual machine images are still present on your device and take a lot of free space on your hard drive (up to 20 GB!). So, it is definitely a good idea to remove them all, too.
- Go to your Library folder and remove all folders and files related to VirtualBox.
Another way to delete the utility from your machine is to use a famous App Cleaner, developed to remove different kinds of apps from your PC.
That`s all! Now the programs itself, as well as all its related and supported files, are fully deleted from your system.
