Default VM problems

I recently downloaded both VMware player 6.0.3 and virtualBox 4.3.14. I'm running a CentOS 6.5 i386 on both of them. my operating system is windows 6.2.9200 (Windows 8) and i'm on an HP laptop with AMD A4 processor and 4gb of RAM. I don't remember the model of laptop.

My problem is, every time i reload my vm, no changes were saved. any downloads, any files i created, even my desktop doesn't save. It does it on VMware Player and virtualBox, so it's not the system. Is there a way i can keep my data, without taking a snapshot every time i shut my VM off?

they're saving to the hard drive. I know VirtualBox for sure is using a virtual disk file
