VirtualBox Folder sharing

Posted by

This blog will help those who are looking for sharing files between  VirtualBox and Windows system .

Download virtualbox guest additions from this as per your vbox version. I downloaded VBoxGuestAdditions_5.2.18 from this link.

  1. Shut down virtual machine.
  2. Go to settings>Storage, and under “controller: ID” option, add an optical drive with the guest additions CD
  3. Reboot your virtual machine.
  4. Once the machine is booted, click Devices>Insert Guest Additions CD image
  5. Cd to the optical drive /media/username/VBox_GAs_5.2
  6. Run sudo sh ./


7. Reboot


You should be able to see /media/sf_shared in Ubuntu.
