Virtual Box Pauses

Description

Hi,

I installed Sun VirtualBox 2.2.4 on Windows Vista Home. The Guest OS is configured to be Windows XP professional. Then Installed Netbeans6.5 and McAfee. Now the Guest OS pauses approximately for each 1 min as soon as I restart the Virtual OS.

Here I'm attaching the VBOX.log file for support ease. Please suggest further steps.

Regards, Harsha

You didn't see this message: 'Host system reported disk full. VM execution is suspended. You can resume after freeing some space' ?

comment:3 in reply to: ↑ 2 Changed 5 years ago by sriharshareddyk

Yes, It is that message which I get.

Did you actually understand the message? It tells you that your host disk is full and you have to delete some files before VBox can continue. Please check drive F: to see if there is enough space available.

Or you've put the VDI on a FAT32 partition in which case you'll hit the file size limit sooner rather than later. (use NTFS)

Hi Frank,

Host disk can't be full because it has about 200GB free space and the Hard disk on which the Virtual Hard Disk reside has 250 GB of free space..

Hi Sandervl73,

The host and guest hard disks were formatted to be in NTFS. Please suggest.

Are you sure that drive F: is NTFS-formatted?

comment:9 in reply to: ↑ 8 Changed 5 years ago by sriharshareddyk

Yes, I'm very sure about it. Here is some more information about the set that I did... Guest OS Hard disk size 10GB Dynamic Size configured on a hard disk having over 250 GB of freespace. Tried to fix the problem by adding another virtual harddisk of size close to 40GB yet the problem persists. Tried to fix the problem also by unchecking the caching files option on the Virtual hard drives partitions properties after booting the Virtual OS, yet the problem persists.

Really strange. You should have received another error in the FAT32 case, so for some reason Windows reports a disk full error.

How big is your VDI?

comment:12 in reply to: ↑ 11 ; follow-up: ↓ 13 Changed 5 years ago by sriharshareddyk

Again, all my hard disks and Virtual Drives and everything is in NTFS and not FAT32. VDI has been configured to be 10GB Dynamic Size. of Which virtual size is 10GB and actual free space is 6.9GB.

Hi All,

I tried to recreate an new virtual Hard disk of size 80GB freshly reinstalled with Windows XP Professional with SP3 and I still have the same problem.

Thank you all, for working on this issue.

Do you have any special software installed on your computer? Encryption for the F drive or some file system filter (anti-virus)?

comment:15 Changed 5 years ago by sriharshareddyk

No, It is a freshly installed Guest OS. Yea, there is any option to set encryption on my portable hard drive which is a make of Western Digital but I have not enabled it yet. And, there is not antivirus installed on it yet. Its just plain Windows XP professional still lying on there...

I meant on your host.

comment:17 in reply to: ↑ 16 Changed 5 years ago by sriharshareddyk

Yes, I have McAfee Total Protection 2008 installed on host machine.

comment:18 Changed 4 years ago by aeichner

Is this still a problem with a newer release of VirtualBox?
