Unable to open virtual machine file after moving it to a new partition

Hi Guys,
I had to change the location of my virtual machine vbox file as I had to make some changes on my partition.
As I try to open it now, I get this below error message:

Failed to open virtual machine located in /mnt/WINDOWS/VirtualBox VMs/Windows10/Windows10.vbox.
Trying to open a VM config ‘/mnt/WINDOWS/VirtualBox VMs/Windows10/Windows10.vbox’ which has the same UUID as an existing virtual machine.

Result Code:NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
Interface:IMachine {85632c68-b5bb-4316-a900-5eb28d3413df}
Callee:IVirtualBox {d0a0163f-e254-4e5b-a1f2-011cf991c38d}

I would really appreciate if someone could guide me to a resolution (either an existing thread or directly letting me know the best way to approach it.

BTW, I am using Version 6.1.38 r153438 (Qt5.15.3) on Ubuntu 22.04
