Virtualbox disconnects USB drives without first unmounting them
|unmount, data corruption
|Mac OS X
I'm using a macOS 10.15.4 host with Virtualbox 6.1.6 with a Windows 7 guest. If I select a USB drive already mounted on the host to connect to the guest from the machine USB menu the drive gets suddenly disconnected without first unmounting it thus causing filesystem inconsistencies and data loss. The same thing happens with linux guests.
I'd happily attach a log but I'm afraid of losing data on my USB backup hard drive so I hope this is alright.
Thanks in advance.
