12 If you have run out of space you may have corrupted the image.
14 The settings and path for the image file are kept in
15 ~/.VirtualBox/VirtualBox.xml
17 You can edit these there, move the image to whichever partition you want and
18 try to start it up once more. With a bit of luck no damage happened,
19 otherwise you will have to delete it and start again.
21 PS. Don't forget snapshots, which also are saved in the same area of your ~/
23 HTH.
