Description

When trying to use the VBoxManage modifyhd --compact command, I get the following error.

ERROR: Could not find a hard disk with location '{6608d0e9-ff8e-48d6-8c15-8fa167 e4cb70}' in the media registry ('C:\Users\Barry/.VirtualBox\VirtualBox.xml') Details: code VBOX_E_OBJECT_NOT_FOUND (0x80bb0001), component VirtualBox, interf ace IVirtualBox, callee IUnknown Context: "FindHardDisk(Bstr(FilenameOrUuid), hardDisk.asOutParam())" at line 430

of file VBoxManageDisk.cpp

Note the incorrect / character for a Windows path in the path to VirtualBox.xml. Otherwise, the path is correct.

I don't believe that this was the real problem in your case, I rather assume that the disk image was really not present in the media registry. Please reopen if necessary.
