Accessing my Windows 10 shared folder with Mint

Post by Kazoo56 » Wed Oct 31, 2018 7:45 pm

Hi guys,
I've been trying out different distros for the past couple of months now and it seems that Mint is the best for beginners like myself. But the one thing I just can't seem to do in any distro is access my windows 10 music folder within any of them. I already made the folder a shared one through Virtual Box but don't know how to get to it. Can someone please help me? I would like to make a full transition form Windows to Linux eventually but need my music. I'll learn the other stuff as I go along. :?: :?: :?:

can you tell us, what your setup currently is :
- which system is the Host System
- which system is the Virtual Guest System ?

My host system is Windows 10 and guest is Linux Mint. I was able to access the folder but would like to know how to have it available everytime I start up virual box and Mint. What are the commands?
