@anki63 

Could you try this solution? 

Go to the folder "C:\Users\COMPUTER_NAME\.VirtualBox\Machines\VM_NAME\" and if you see two xml files with different suffixes.
1. VM_NAME.xml-prev
2. VM_NAME.xml-tmp
So it simply means the Sandbox couldn't find "VM_NAME.xml" because it didn't exist.
Make a copy of the "VM_NAME.xml-prev" file and renamed the copy to "VM_NAME.xml"

Restarted VirtualBox and it worked just fine.

Hey @Shelton  , I am sorry, I couldn't reply earlier.

The issue got solved by reinstalling the virtual box
