Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)

I have Virtualbox v 4.1.0 r73009 on Windows 7 64 bit with Systematically after I restore to a snapshot the VM becomes inaccessible, in the snapshot folder there appears a 2nd snapshot. After quitting Virtualbox & then relaunching Virtualbox the VM is normally accessible but the 2nd snapshot worries me. Never seen this with older versions.

Should be finally fixed in VBox 4.1.4. Please confirm.

I confirm that indeed this seems to work. I was not aware of v4.1.4 because check for updates continued to tell me that I had the latest version...

Unfortunately I have to come back on this; it still does not work correctly. After you restore to a snapshot you just created all seems fine but when you restore to an older snapshot things go wrong again.

Would it possible to attach the .vbox file of the VM before you restore the snapshot? Also a detailed description of what exactly you have done, would be helpful.

I still can't reproduce this. Can you give a little bit more details about how your snapshots where arranged and what you have done exactly? Is there one disk attached to the VM or more? Where DVD/CD images involved?

Just ran into the same problem on 4.1.10. Win7 64-bit host, WinXP guest. I was simply restoring to the most recent snapshot; the same operation was successful when I last restored 2 days ago. My snapshot tree isn't very complicated either. I've attached various logs, but I'm not sure how helpful they'll be. As others have mentioned (e.g., #9457, #9526), this problem doesn't happen consistently, but is frequent enough to be a pain. This last happened to me about a month ago (2/25), though I don't use my VM very frequently, so I'd say this has actually happened twice in my last 5 restores, which is not a good success ratio.
