Eric, I see parted.pdf and under it unavailable. When I click on it, I get the same message that Pete posted above.

Perhaps the forum software doesn't allow pdf files?
So it isn't just sunrat nor a gdrive permission issue.
I looked up that error but it didn't give me anything helpful.
I also have a FrankenDebian because I have installed Google Chrome via its deb package.
As far as VBox goes I have (virtually) given up on VMs in Linux. I have a VM set up on my Windows 10 desktop to run Linux if I want to. I have enough old junkers around here to run Linux on the rails, and I don't need all the licensing hassle and updates to bother running a Windows VM on any of them.
According to the purists...probably yes. If it didn't come from the Debian repos, it's an "outside" source and therefore, "Franken".
But I wouldn't sweat it too much crp! Oracle is a (somewhat) reputable software maker and VirtualBox is a very popular and trusted software with a significant user-base. The VB software itself is open-source, it's only the extension packs that are proprietary in nature and, therefore, the problem with Debian. Debian doesn't like non-free software and won't support it. But if any non-Debian repo software will play nice and dovetail with the Debian OS, I'd be comfortable that VB is that software. And IF you have a problem, the VB forums are quite active and you should be able to troubleshoot or ask for VB advice with your Debian OS. And worst case scenario, you'll still have Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) waiting for you in the Debian repos. JMO...
