Yep. We consultants move a lot of things around and thus break them frequently. So frequently that in our cloud the program that loads the keys after an upgrade or restore is written to automatically rebuild all virtual optical drives. Them virtual guys are free so we took the decision to not frustrate ourselves and rebuilt always.

We call that bit 'ResetVOpt' and it can be called at any time if in doubt. So potentially you could create a similar program on your system with any drives in it that you use.
