    Default Shared Files in virtualbox

    Hi,

    I have installed openSUSE 11.2 in virtualbox on my windows 7 laptop. I am trying to get two shared files between 7 and 11.2.
    I have used this command
    Code:
    mount -t vboxsf Documents /home/(username)/desktop/Shared
    without success with the output
    Code:
    /sbin/mount.vboxsf: mounting failed with the error: No such file or directory
    Any ideas on how i could share this document folder and my picture folder?


    Thanks,

    This is in the downloadable VirtualBox manual. You can also find walk-throughs and overviews on the Web; ex.,

    VirtualBox Shared Folders - Virtuatopia

    There's another option, though. If you just need to share an occasional file, you could use something like SSH/SFTP between the two. Simply run OpenSSH in the Suse guest and log in at its IP address.

    OK, then try that link I showed you. Download the VirtualBox documentation (which is pretty good, actually), and do a search for "Folder Sharing" and/or "Shared Folders" in it. There are plenty of walkthroughs on the Web.
