Sorry if this is a stupid question but couldnt find the answer by googling
Right now I analyze a malware by using remote debugger of IDA, and i run the debugger on a isolated VM that has shared a folder to my IDA's VM, as of right now the way i analyze a sample is by putting it on that shared folder so i can run the remote debugger, because if i set the path to a location in my IDA's VM then it won't work (it says wrong parameters), so it looks like the sample has to be in a location where both my IDA's VM and the isolated VM can reach (i think)
so to solve this i just put samples i want to analyze in the shared folder
the problem is that the .idb file spawns there as well and if its a ransomware then my .idb file will get ruined ( i have to say that IDA's VM is also in a isolated host only network)
so two questions :
am i approaching this right? is there an easier way for me to use a remote debugger without using a shared folder?
how to change the .idb's default path? so i can put the sample in the shared folder or somewhere else but the .idb gets generated somewhere else?
