Ticket #11962 (closed defect: fixed)
creating new virtual disk detects host free disk space incorrectly => Fixed in SVN
|Reported by:||harb||Owned by:|
The free-disk-space is checked on the drive where "VirtualBox VMs" folder resides instead of inside this folder. The folder is in my case a directory symlink to another drive so the free space inside this folder is different than in any of the parent folders or the drive where the symlink resides.
to create such symlink use: symlink /d "VirtualBox VMs" "d:\somedir\VirtualBox VMs" (while in the folder c:\Users\user\ where user is some admin user on windows; this assumes you moved "c:\Users\user\VirtualBox VMs\" folder to "d:\somedir\" before executing the symlink command)
I'll add some screenshots illustrating the free disk space differences and the error I get from virtualbox in this case (trying to make a 20gig virtual disk)
