Solved: Can't browse folder shared with VirtualBox

Postby arbasel » 2017-09-01 11:21

Hi created the following folder to share with VirtualBox

/MyTemp (drwxrwxrwx 2 root vboxusers 4096 Sep 1 22:48 MyTemp)

It automounts in my Virtualbox but when I try and access it I get, "This location could not be displayed. You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of "sf_MyTemp"

Guest Additions are installed.

You need to add your user to the virtualbox share group In the guest.

Code: Select all
sudo usermod -aG vboxsf username
