Cloning seems to corrupt filesystem
|Reported by:||gmueller||Owned by:|
I've often cloned xpdisks.vdi under windows xp with no errors. The newest version seems to corrupt filesystem meta information. After starting the cloned image I always get new Hardware detected: VBOX HARDDISC, dll-files are missing when invoking the system hardware information, installation process can't write into certain windows directories. When ignoring those installation errors, filesystem check occurs after rebooting and many lost files will be recovered. cloned system is not useable.
