clonevdi doesn't work - can't create VDI directory...?

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

I've used the "VBoxManage clonevdi" command to clone a vdi file 4 times, no problem.

For some reason though, now I can't. When I try, I get this:

VirtualBox Command Line Management Interface Version 2.0.6

[!] Callee      = IHardDisk, {fd443ec1-000f-4f5b-9282-d72760a66916}

The ~/.VirtualBox/VDI directory already exists and has 4 vdi files in it.

Why is it trying to create another directory?

The command I was using was:

VBoxManage clonevdi good_base.vdi cfc.vdi

good_base.vdi is a vdi file in ~/.VirtualBox/VDI which I have cloned before.
