Strange message when removing an Immutable disk and 'Remove' button should not be enabled

  • Create a new hard disk, and mark it as immutable.
  • Attach it to a VM.
  • Use Virtual Media Manager to remove it (Remove button should not be enabled)
  • "Are you sure?" - Remove
  • "Do you want to delete?" - Keep
    Failed to close the hard disk C:
    Hard disk '<NULL>' has 20641136 child hard disks

If I answer "Do you want to delete?" - Delete, the message is:

Hard disk '<NULL>' has 0 child hard disks

  • Version changed from VirtualBox 3.0.8 to VirtualBox 3.2.8

The message looks better now. Actually one must remove the childs first. Though you are right, the remove button should be grayed out.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

AFAIR fixed a few releases ago.
