This is a portable VirtualBox build that is prepackaged with an instruction PDF for you to be able to shrink your images if you need to for archival purposes. This includes a premade however highly modified osboxes.org linux image. Some users have reported that due to Windows Creator updates the associated portable VB container fails to load the VM. If that is the case then rather than have it portable you will need to perform a full install of VB from the official website and drop the VM files themselves into the required path. This will give the same experience however the initial goal had been for a portable package. Download PiShrink Hub
