I'm trying to install Ubuntu 12.10 with Virtualbox. I allowed 20GB of space for the virtual computer and when I tried to install it, it said that I don't have enough space, which I have over 100GB. And I really don't want to format my hard drive because that would screw up everything. How can I fix this?

The complaint is about the 20GB you allocated for your virtual machine, not for the 100GB remaining space in your host file system. But 20GB should be more than enough. – guntbert Feb 15 '13 at 21:31
Well now I reinstalled it and allowed 50GB for it and now I got it without any trouble. – karhunperse Feb 15 '13 at 23:07
