Ticket #8599 (closed defect: duplicate)
VirtualBox.xml became unreadble, data corrupted, "White screen of death"
|Reported by:||Technologov||Owned by:|
Host: Windows 7, x64
I have same set of VMs, and somehow they got corrupted.
I did access the very same VMs from both Linux and Windows hosts. Used multi boot of host OS with shared NTFS partition.
After this happened, VBox Manager shows "white screen", impossible to do anything with it.
Screenshot of "White screen of death" provided.
While I am figuring out what really happened, I would like to request some workaround.
I would like to delete file:
Unfortunately it is impossible to do so, because Windows 7 has some protection of this location, even with UAC turned off. I cannot access this file with my file managers (Norton Commander and Windows Explorer)
- Please provide CLI utility to backup "VirtualBox.xml"
- Please provide CLI utility to delete "VirtualBox.xml"
This will at least solve the issue for such extreme cases.
