Virtual Box bugs out completely when moving hard disks

Description (last modified by aeichner)

Virtualbox will not allow me to remove or add virtual hard disks after I moved one disk to a new location.

I created a Windows XPSP2 VM. The virtual hard disk was stored as D:\VMs\XPSP3.vdi. I later move the XPSP3.vdi to D:\VMs\XPSP3\XPSP3.vdi in Windows Explorer. Now, I have no option of changing the location inside of Virtualbox. I also am unable to delete the virtual hard disk, because of access denied:

Result Code: VBOX_E_FILE_ERROR (0x80BB0004) Component: VirtualBox Interface: IVirtualBox {3f4ab53a-199b-4526-a91a-93ff62e456b8} Callee: IHardDisk {62551115-83b8-4d20-925f-79e9d3c00f96}

Since I cannot delete the virtual hard disk, I also cannot add the hard disk from the new location, because of a duplicant UUID.

I tried moving the virtual disk back to its original location, but that did not solve the problem.

Tried loading the virtual machine from the vdi in it's original old location and it says it cannot boot the medium. I guess I've completely lost the VM.
