Cannot delete images if snapshots are active

Reported by: Toaster Owned by:
Component: VM control Version: VirtualBox 1.3.8
Keywords: delete image mac os x Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: other


(1.3.99-beta1 for Mac OS X) It isn't possible to delete the entry for image which was already deleted manually from the file system, hence the machine also couldn't be removed.

Could you be more specific please? This should actually work.

comment:2 by Toaster, 17 years ago

Setup: 1.3.99-beta1 running on Mac OS X

Use GUI to: (1) Create a new virtual machine (2) Create a disc image file (3) Close GUI

Now delete manually the file <<

(4) Start GUI (5) Try to delete the virtual machine

Works fine for me. Is your VM powered off when you try to delete it? Are there snapshots?

in reply to:  3 comment:4 by Toaster, 17 years ago

Yes, the vm was powered off and there were snapshots.

comment:5 by Achim Hasenmueller, 17 years ago

This is actually working as designed. You have to first delete all snapshots before you can actually delete the VM. It was done in order to reduce complexity and will be addressed later.

This should work and VirtualBox 2.2.0 improved things.
