    Is it possible to utilize the Windows 7 I have installed in boot camp instead of installing Windows 7 a second time for virtual box?

    I don't believe Virtual Box has that capability
    You will need either Parallels or VMware Fusion to do that

    Does that mean I will have to install all of the programs I have installed on boot camp a second time in virtual box? I imagine I'll need a lot more space for virtual box. Is it possible in boot camp to access files created in windows programs in virtual box?
