Is this VM text-only? If it is I suspect that drag-n-drop won't work because a text console environment doesn't have a desktop to drop things on.

Virtualbox Shared Folders or a real shared folder over a network are solid and reliable transfer methods for files.

Otherwise, please start the VM from full power off, not save-state. Run until you see the problem happen, then shut down the VM from within the VM OS if possible. If not possible, close the Virtualbox window for the VM with the Power Off option set.

Please right-click the VM in the main Virtualbox window's VM list, choose Show Log. Save the far left tab's log, zip the log file, and post the zip file, using the forum's Upload Attachment tab.
