When running vagrant up command, the following I get the this error.

`Starting Vagrant VM

I changed the default directory for virtual box. I am using a Windows 10 machine; Vagrant 2.4.1 & VirtualBox 7.0.14

    Hi @idelossantos4,

    I was unable to reproduce the issue, in fact it worked for me (on MacOS, I don't have a Windows OS to test on):

    vagrant up
    ==> vagrant: A new version of Vagrant is available: 2.4.1 (installed version: 2.3.7)!
    ==> vagrant: To upgrade visit: https://www.vagrantup.com/downloads.html

    Bringing machine 'default' up with 'virtualbox' provider...
    ==> default: Importing base box 'labVM-v1.box'...
    ==> default: Matching MAC address for NAT networking...
    ==> default: Setting the name of the VM: LFS267-lab-resources_default_1710175111830_64061
    ==> default: Clearing any previously set network interfaces...
    ==> default: Preparing network interfaces based on configuration...
    default: Adapter 1: nat
    ==> default: Forwarding ports...
    default: 5000 (guest) => 5000 (host) (adapter 1)
    default: 22 (guest) => 2222 (host) (adapter 1)
    ==> default: Booting VM...
    ==> default: Waiting for machine to boot. This may take a few minutes...
    default: SSH address:
    default: SSH username: vagrant
    default: SSH auth method: private key
    ==> default: Machine booted and ready!
    ==> default: Checking for guest additions in VM...
    default: The guest additions on this VM do not match the installed version of
    default: VirtualBox! In most cases this is fine, but in rare cases it can
    default: prevent things such as shared folders from working properly. If you see
    default: shared folder errors, please make sure the guest additions within the
    default: virtual machine match the version of VirtualBox you have installed on
    default: your host and reload your VM.
    default: Guest Additions Version: 6.1.28 r147628
    default: VirtualBox Version: 7.0
    ==> default: Mounting shared folders...
    default: /vagrant => /Users/luiseduardo/Documents/Archivos importantes/IT/LF/Courses/LFS267/LFS267-lab-resources

    So, I was researching on the error and I found the following:


    So your action plan is the following:

    1.- Ensure you have enough free space on the disk/partition to start the VM, make space if needed.
    2.- Destroy the VM.
    3.- Start the VM.

    Let me know of the results :)
