Boxes: no size increase possible

Hello :slight_smile:

I have gnome-boxes installed in Manjaro, on a 500GB SSD. I still have 122 GB free. In Boxes is mounted Windows 10, with as configuration: 4 cores, 10 GB of ram, and 85.8 of used space. The limit displayed is 92.1 GB.
I increase the limit with the plus sign to 100 GB, but Boxes refuses to validate it. As a result, I can’t install Windows updates.
Curiously, when I install applications, the limit increases automatically, but not for Windows which analyses the remaining disk space.
Thank you very much for your help. If you speak French, I would appreciate to read you more easily :wink:

Could you please attempt to run gnome-boxes in the commandline and share here what has been printed there?

Good morning,
Thank you for your attention and for returning. Since you are not very familiar with Konsole, could you please tell me how to proceed? Thank you.

Sure. Open your terminal application (Konsole it seems) and enter

G_MESSAGES_DEBUG=all gnome-boxes

Go to the Preferences of your virtual machine and try to make the resize changes again. After that, go back to your terminal window and copy all the text printed there and paste it here.

From the log messages you posted, it seems that the format of image used for this VM doesn’t support resizing when there are snapshots (Instantanés).

If you don’t have a problem with deleting your snapshots, go to the Preferences → Snapshots page, and remove them one by one. Then, try to resize again. Now it should work. Be aware that you cannot recover the snapshots.

In the new version of Boxes the new VMs will be created with an image format version that supports resize with snapshots, but unfortunately we can’t fix this retrospectively (for VMs that already exist).

Thank you for your quick and accurate feedback. :wink: Before I put your instructions into practice, is it possible to move the snapshots elsewhere? If so, how do I proceed in the order line please?
Is the new version of Boxes already released?

You can clone the VM and perform the resize on the new one, maintaining the old one intact (with its snapshots).

Is the new version of Boxes already released?

No, not yet. It will be available when GNOME 44 gets released in March. See FortyFour - GNOME Wiki!

Hello felipeborges :grinning:,

Thank you for your answers. I managed to find the location of the images that I copied elsewhere. I did what you told me twice, before it worked. Windows does its updates. I will also be able to copy my 500G SSD to the 1T one for more space.
Thanks a lot. :clap: :pray: :smiley: :raising_hand_man:

I’m glad it worked for you! Thanks for using Boxes!
