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 use virtualbox. My host OS is Ubuntu and the guest one is Windows XP. I want to share a folder between these two OS. But I don't know how. I've added the folder on 'Devices->Shared Folders' window but I don't know how to access it from Windows .
I am looking at Gnome Boxes as a replacement for VirtualBox. I like it except I can't see how to share folders between the guest and the host. Is there a way to do this? I use a Windows 7 VM for some software for work, and having the shared folders is critical. I am not allowed to install Samba on my Fedora host otherwise I'd consider doing that and having the guest just map a drive that way.
I have Ubuntu 12.10 as Host OS, FreeBSD 9 as Guest OS in Virtualbox 4.1.18. I have samba installed in both Ubuntu and FreeBSD, and shared few folders from virtualbox, also ticking the automount option. I have also done right click and share in Ubuntu. But when I try to mount in FreeBSD using mount -t vboxfs sharedfolder /home/user/shared it says sharedfolder operation not permitted.
