Shared Folder

A shared folder is a folder that exists on the host system but can be accessed from the guest system as well (the folder and its entire contents are shared between host and guest). Please noted that a shared folder cannot be added while the virtual machine is running.
  1. Open Settings by clicking or typing CTRL+s.
  2. Go to Shared Folders and add a new shared folder.

  3. Choose "Other..." from Folder Path dropdown list and select the host's folder to be shared, then tick Auto-mount.

  4. The shared folder is now mounted automatically during boot. On the virtual machine, the shared folder can be found at /media/sf_<folder_name>. To display a link to this shared folder on your Desktop, create a symbolic link on a terminal as follows:

    ln -s /media/sf_<folder_name> /home/csi2100/Desktop
