Today my Windows build machine reached its disk space limit. It turned out that I had more than 400GB in the folder

C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\VirtualBox VMs

During the build process, a virtual machine is mounted using Vagrant and VirtualBox. The previous virtual machine is normally destroyed beforehand.

Does anyone know how I could change my Virtualbox or Vagrant configuration to avoid that happening again?


  • I don't know how to fix the issue but for the time being you can remove the VMs manually via the Virtualbox GUI. – user256743 Apr 25 '14 at 21:02
