I have created two Virtualbox machine using an ubuntu ISO file.

In both of them when I try to take a snapshot it says:

Failed to create a snapshot of the virtual machine Ubuntu.

I tried to run virtualbox as administrator but still get the error.

What could be causing this, and how do I get more information about the error?

re-attach virtual drives and make sure it says attached in the settings
