Well shared folders should work perfectly fine, I use them here without any problems at all ?
What version of VB are you using ?
Did you get any error messages ?
There is another way, which I also use ... it involves creating a Samba server on the HOST and then connecting to the Samba server from the
windows XP/VIsta guest.
To install Samba on the HOST use the following command in a terminal :
- Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install samba
Once installed, you will need to configure your Samba server, the details are here : viewtopic.php?f=150&t=12644#p78658
Hope this helps !
