this is a sub-portion of the more serious bug #25.

Bug still exists in 1.3.4.

recommended behavior:

If it does seems "." it still must add ".vdi" extension automatically, with few exceptions to this rule: a) if user has added ".vdi" manually b) if user has added ".VDI" (upper-case) manually

What do you think?

  • Summary changed from When making a new hark disk - VBox doesn't adds ".vdi" extension automatically to New Hard Disk wizard doesn't add ".vdi" extension if the VDI filename contains a dot

Back then, the idea was to let the user a possibility to specify a custom extension when creating a new VDI in the New VDI Wizard. It doesn't seem really useful for me any more -- if it's really necessary one can still use VBoxManage that doesn't apply any extension automatically.

The proposed behavior will be available in the next release with the exception that on Linux, VBox VDI files have the ".vdi" extension, not ".VDI" or ".VdI" or whatever. On Win32, it's case insensitive.
