Crash when Hard Disk full on host

Reported by: Technologov Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 1.3.2
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: other


Software: Windows XP Pro SP2 Eng, no extra patches, VirtualBox 1.3.2 Full.

VirtualBox crashes when the hard disk on the real PC (host) gets full.

recommended behavior:

MS Virtual PC 2004 simply pauses the VM and informs the user of such a problem.

The VM can be shut-down or unpaused. If there is still no enough space, it gives this warning again, and pauses again.

ohhh... one more thing: paused VM can also be hibernated in VPC 2004.

steps to reproduce:

fill also all your hark disk partition on host PC (leave little space, say 1 GB or half GB), and start installing some heavy guest OS such as Windows XP or SUSE Linux 10.x.

I promise: a crash.
