This is a WARNING when are working with VMware Composer. When you have other VM’s/Golden Images located in the folder Composer creates when you create a Desktop pool (The folder with the name of the Pool). Move them into their own folder!

Last night I could not believe my eyes. I saw my precious golden image and 2 other copy’s of the VM being deleted by Composer because I moved it into the Composer Desktop Folder. All my work of the last 3 days was gone Sad smile

Let me tell you how to prevent this:
Place no other VM’s in the Composer Folder other than the VM’s Composer creates and maintains.

You have been warned: View Composer deletes everything in the Folder named as the pool
