I also posted this question in the comment section of the page:
"SAS University Edition license renewal: Do I update my software or install a new copy?"
but it seems not many people are reading and answering there so I post it here again:
I downloaded and installed a new copy. I got a new URL for the new license and now I can not access my old code files. I still can open the old URL with the old license. Can I move my old files to the new URL or do I have to download and upload every single file?

Use the shared folder (or a subdirectory of it) for saving codes, then you can move the files from one shared folder to the other with the Windows Explorer (or similar tool, if you're on a Mac or Linux)

PS adding a comment to a post that's almost a year old (and in the wrong forum to boot) won't get you much attention.
Posting a new question does, as those always appear on top of the list most contributors keep watching.

Assuming you have defined filenames and libnames, somthing like:
filename source '/folders/myshortcuts/My_Folders/source'; libname mydata '/folders/myshortcuts/My_Folders/data';
If you defined same shared folder name (exact spelling, mine is: My_Folders) you should not have any problem to find your sas files.

Thanks all for the answers. I was a bit irritated because I couldn't find a way to create a virtual folder. It's because I use a different virtual machine than Virtualbox (VMware Workstation). So I guess I have to install Virtualbox too. Thanks Randy for the FAQ-reminder

thanks for the hint. I managed to create the shared folder with WMware. First it didn't work. It seems because I just suspended the virtual machine instead of power off.
