We have been investing plenty of personal time and energy for many years to share our knowledge with you all. However, we now need your help to keep this blog running. All you have to do is just click one of the adverts on the site, otherwise it will sadly be taken down due to hosting etc. costs. Thank you.
You can create a shared folder to make file sharing easy between the Windows host and Ubuntu client. To do this, do the following.
Create a folder called "VMShareHost" on your Windows host machine.
Add shared folder to Oracle VM VirtualBox by following the menu options "Settings->Shared Folder->Add" and select the folder then tick "auto mouth" option. After this process, start the client session.
When Ubuntu client starts, there should be a folder called "sf_VMShareHost" under "media" directory.
inanzzz@inanzzz-VirtualBox:~$ ls -l /media/
drwxr-x---+ 3 root root 4096 Nov 4 11:35 inanzzz
drwxrwx--- 1 root vboxsf 0 Nov 4 11:11 sf_VMShareHost
Grant accessing permissions to your user so that it can use the folder. That should be it!
inanzzz@inanzzz-VirtualBox:~$ sudo usermod -aG vboxsf $(whoami)
