Virtual Box 5.1.38 VM 4 Gig, takes 1 gig on the host!

Hello everyone

I was used to utilize Vbox on Ubuntu but at my nice surprise, on ELive as the Host, VBox 5.1.38 32 bits, takes less memory !

I allocated the maximum I can to the VM ( 32 bits vbox max is 4 gig) to the Ubuntu VM, within the VM I see 4 gig of RAM and on the host ( Elive ) I see 1.2 gig !

I don’t get it but like it…

Note : before , on ubuntu as the host, a ubuntu guest vm was taking from the host, the memory allocated,. the full 4 gig.
