Virtualbox Mac Os C Drive Minimum Storage

02.08.2020by
I'm trying to get a portable USB drive setup to move large quantities of image data between my mac (Host) and the windows VM to use with software that will only run on Windows. I have read through all the very detailed posts on the general advice Topic 'USB basics and troubleshooting' but am still having no luck. Below is a general description of my issue ('USB Device not recognized') as well as all of the requested details from the troubleshooting step #8 ask for help. Thanks in advance for any additional advice.
  1. Mac Os Iso For Virtualbox

Mar 03, 2020  VBoxManage modifyhd “C:UsersChrisVirtualBox VMsWindows 7Windows 7.vdi” -resize 81920 (Use two dashes before resize in the command above.) Replace the file path in the command above with the location of the VirtualBox disk you want to resize and the number with the size you want to enlarge the image to (in MB). Jul 09, 2019  As you recall, VirtualBox is installed on the host OS running on a host machine (a physical machine) and the guest OS is the operating system running on a VM.

If you try to maximize the VirtualBox VM window right after installing Windows 10 on a VirtualBox VM, the size of the guest OS user interface is not increased (see the screenshot below).

VirtualBox Version 5.2.18 r124319 (Qt5.6.3)
Host: macOS 10.13.6 (17G65)
Virtualbox mac os resolutionGuest: Windows 10 Home Version 1803 Installed on 9/13/18 OS Build 1734.345
The USB device is a Samsung Portable SSD T5 drive - connected directly to one of my Mac's four USB-C ports via a usb-c to usb-c cable. It is being captured by my Guest (Windows) but I get the following error in windows: 'USB Device not recognized.' When I go to the device manager in Windows under Universal Serial Bus Controllers there are three choices
Intel USB 3.0 extensible host controller- 1.0 (Microsoft)
Unknown USB Device (Invalid Device Descriptor)
USB Root Hub (USB 3.0)
If I look at the properties for the Unknown USB Device. It says under status 'Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43) The USB device returned an invalid USB device descriptor.'
If I shut down the Windows VM in order to do the steps recommended in the general troubleshooting (see below) the Drive gets captured back to my Mac (Host) and I can see the drive and look at its properties to see that it is formatted ExFat and should be usable with Windows (full property info as reported by Mac also listed below). Additionally, it seems important to note that I have successfully connected a different drive (Seagate) to my Windows (Guest) without these issues.
Lastly I have attached the zipped log from a cold_start / login / plug_USB / unplug_USB / complete_shutdown cycle as requested in Steps from #8: Asking for help.
