I wanted to use VirtualBox to host Windows 7 on Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit.

Installed VirtualBox from The Ubuntu Software Centre and fired up the New VM Wizard, wanted to create a fixed Virtual disk 25GB. It went through the creation process but when finished the files were not there.

I tried again, the files were created in during the process, I could see them in my /home folder, but disappeared when the Wizard finished.

tried it with .vdmk as well, same result, the sub directories and files are there when the wizard is running but disappear on completion.

Any ideas?
