Treehous VM - How to copy files and start the app that way

Ok so probably the question by itself is really weird so I will explain it more.

I am currently doing a Odot rails series and from time to time I have to take current project files and just copy and paste them since there are some jumps in the course. Anyhow I am using a Treehouse VM since I am on Windows and it is just a pain in the neck to set up rails env here, and I now need to copy and paste the current files from the project into a vm directory. I do that and when I start up rails server it shows that there is no page like that.

Now I know just deleting the files and copying the project files wont work. I did that like two weeks ago , and it actually asked me to install some gems and do another rake db:migrate and that should be it, but now once I wanted to apply files from the middle of the project it wont work.

Hopefully it is understandable enough if not please ask!

Jason Seifer I bet you know the answer to my problem :)

I am currently on a "Blank Slates in Ruby on Rails" course , in the middle of it actually.
