Saved state shared among snapshots

Postby diagiman » 16. Jul 2011, 06:35


In 4.1 there is new feature that as I see was not mentioned anywhere.
The saved state file (*.sav) is no longer an uuid and multiple snapshots can refer to single sav file.
It improves used space and time needed for snapshot take is some situations, e.g. when one want to take snapshot of current "Saved" state.

But there are some bugs in this too (host WinXP SP3 x86, Vbox 4.1b3):
1. When deleting machine (removing all files) with have "shared" saved state I get
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
Failed to remove the virtual machine <VM name>.
Medium '<Path to disk image>' is locked for reading by another task.
Component: Medium
Interface: IMedium {53f9cc0c-e0fd-40a5-a404-a7a5272082cd}

2. When downgrading VM back from VBox 4.1 to 4.0 these saved states are lost (not actually a bug...)
