I'll consider copying and re-importing or cloning the .vdi per your suggestions, but it still doesn't explain why the file size is only half of the space it seems to be taking up on the partition. Should I try doing a fsck on the partition to see if the space can be recovered without removing the fi...

I have a 40.2GB partition where I keep my VirtualBox virtual HDDs. I made the mistake of creating a virtual disk (a .vdi file) with a 50GB dynamic size allocation -- I should have made it only to 20GB instead -- but fortunately the file only takes up 16.5GB of actual space. Since there's no way to r...

Interesting. I had heard that k9copy had gone the way of the dodo bird. Development Development was resumed in 2014, under the project listing of K9copy-reloaded at, by a new developer after the initial development of K9Copy was stopped in 2011 with the author citing the fragmentatio...

Good article, and good advice from Vaughan-Nichols. And, that's leads to another problem. You see, Windows 10 is Not a desktop operating system in the way every earlier version of Windows is. Windows 10 is a hybrid cloud/desktop operating system. Yes, therein lies the problem. I was never a big fan ...

I probably shouldn't be answering your kmail question because I don't use it, preferring Thunderbird instead. But here goes: When you say there are a "fair few" mailboxes, are you referring to different email accounts or different folders where things are saved under the same account? I be...

There's also kdesu for us KDE aficionados. :wink: One thing that puzzles me is why sudo is considered "safer" than su. In Linux (and Unix in general), there is a SuperUser named Root. The Windows equivalent of Root is Administrators group. The SuperUser can do anything and everything, and ...

They started with 10.04 LTS as the base, I think. They're running into problems with brand spanking new hardware not being supported by the old base and are having to backport. Makes sense. I'm thinking their hardware vendors need to smarten up. You hit the nail on the head. Linux is obviously not ...

Windows 10 may prove to be "a bridge too far" for Microsoft. Invading the privacy of home users and rummaging through their personal data is one thing. Collecting confidential and sensitive information from multinational corporations and government agencies is quite another. With commercia...

From which version of VirtualBox did the saved state come from?

Here's the other thread on this topic: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=38361&hilit=virtualbox+5.0

Go to the bottom of the first page of this thread and look at the Jerry3905 post.

I read somewhere that in order to run with two CPUs you have to enable I/O APIC before installing the VM. I don't think VirtualBox will allow you to select more than one CPU if unless I/O APIC is checked, so that may not be your problem. When you refer to "resuming saved VM" do you mean st...
