vboxmanage createfromraw file.dd file.vdi does not write the vdi file to disk at the end

Reported by: yobubba Owned by:

I have created a windows.dd file and am now trying to convert it to a vdi file. The vboxmanage command seems to run ok and the file keeps growing in size, but when the command ends the file is not in the directory.

The command I run is as follows:

vboxmanage convertfromraw windows.dd windows.vdi

see attached for views of two separate windows. One running create from raw and the other doing an ls on the file. the file doesn't write to the disk.

So you mean this was a disk failure?
