Virtualbox resize problems

I had an issue with resizing a Virtualbox .vdi file.

Command used:

vboxmanage modify disk.vdi –resize 40960

Error displayed:

VBoxManage: error: Cannot register the hard disk ‘disk.vdi’ {xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx} because a hard disk ‘disk.vdi’ with UUID {xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx} already exists

Solution: 

vboxmanage modifyhd {abc03a41-794b-4a84-adaf-789436919417} --resize 40960    (e.g 40gb hd)

replace {abc etc with the correct UUID

 

See the link below for more detail and the solution.

By the way have you seen the RAVPower FileHub? It's a travel Router with wifi AC750 300Mbps Wi-Fi on 2.4Ghz or 433 Mbps on 5Ghz. It includes an SD Card Reader, 6700mAh Battery and can connect an SSD hd. Make this a portable NAS to store your pics and videos or upload your SD card pics/videos to a SSD hd. This is a bargain for under $60. (Amazon USA Link)
