I have installed the VirtualBox in my system and even the installation is successful but at the time of starting the application I am getting the error.

An error has occurred during virtual machine executions the error details are shown below. You may try to correct the error and resume the virtual machine execution.

The I/O cache encountered an error while updating data in medium "ahci-OO" (rc=V£RR_DISK_FULl). Make sure there is enough free space on the disk and that the disk is working properly. Operation can be resumed afterwards.

Kindly provide me the solution.

Thank you.

This may not indicate a problem with your VirtualBox application. This is a good program to help you install some applications that may not be installed on your computer maybe because of a program incompatibility. This kind of virtualization helps you install a different operating system within your current operating system provided that your machine has plenty of resources to spare.

Resources like the total amount of RAM that is currently installed on your CPU and the total amount of available hard drive space that is really required in using a virtual machine. Don’t use a virtual machine if your system has only enough resources to use.

The error you got in your application says of a drive that is already full. Make sure that your hard drive has plenty of free space for the VirtualBox to use. Just free up some space and start the program again.
