Windows XP SP3 running on Virtual Machine (VM) guest (VirtualBox).
A host's shared folder, say d:\VMSharing.
The guest VM has some file(s) in use from that shared folder (so he is accesing the partition of the host).
The guest machine gets aborted (intentionally, maybe it hangs...
Sharing folders between Windows 8 as host and Ubuntu 13.10 as guest in Virtualbox 4.2.18 r88780 with adequate rights on the guest side. The shared folders in /media/sf_ appeared empty, with Nautilus returning an endless "Loading..." message (my own transaltion of French "Chargement..."). In the terminal, the ls command returns nothing and suspend the command prompt. Any idea?
I have successfully installed Lubuntu as a guest on two systems, including Guest Additions, and I've set up two shared folders using the Devices, Shared Folders Settings dialog. One system is WinXP Pro Host, the other is Win 7 64-bit host. I've checked the boxes for Auto Mount and Make Permanent. My problem is that I can't find these shared folders in the GUI.
