GUI error during the creation of a virtual disk (WINDOWS 7)

There is something that happens that the programmers didn't think of to be addressed by a specific error message during the naming of a new virtual disk with Windows 7 (all earlier versions apply as well. Windows 8 probably applies, too.)

Apparently VB creates a file inside of the VB directory somewhere under the exact name as is given for the virtual drive. If you use quotation marks in the name (IE: Ubuntu 12.10 "Quantal Quetzal" Beta 2), it will give you an error message saying there was a problem creating the virtual drive, as you cannot include quotation marks in a filename with Windows.
