    Default How make shared folder in virtual box mount on startup?

    I have mounted a shared folder in Ubuntu in VirtualBox, but I have to remount everytime I restart. how do I make this command run (for mounting) on startup or make it permanent?

    Add it to '/etc/fstab' on your guest. It should look something like

    SHARED /hostdata vboxsf defaults 0 0

    SHARED is the name of the shared folder, /hostdata is the mount point on the guest.
