Mounting shared Linux disk from inside windows in VirtualBox

Just as a reminder:

  • use the disk sharing icon at the bottom of he VirtualBox window to setup a shared directory (let’s say you give it a name of “shareddir”)
  • go inside the VirtualBox window
  • if you haven’t installed the VirtualBox Guest Additions (commonly referred to as GA), please do so from the “Devices” menu of your Virtual Box window
  • open a terminal (Execute cmd)
  • type “net use x: \\vboxsrv\shareddir”

Seldom, this might still trigger a

System error 67 has occured. The network name cannot be found

In this case, you can use another technique: My Computer -> Network Places -> Add a network place -> Next -> Next -> Browse -> Entire Network (+ sign) -> VirtualBox Shared Folders (+ sign) -> \\VBOXSRV\shareddir -> OK -> Next -> give a name -> Next -> Finish
