comment A folder with d?????????? in the ls -l
My Netowrk adapter, in the Settings on VBox, was set to NAT. As soon as I changed it to Bridged, then restarted the VM, it worked and didn't show the ?'s.

comment A folder with d?????????? in the ls -l
@RuiFRibeiro - well, I have managed to use WinSCP, so don't need to share a folder as such anymore, but is still odd why it is showing ?'s lol

comment A folder with d?????????? in the ls -l
Yeah, that's why I did a ls -l on the directory (even under root), and still had no permissions on the file - it was substituted with ?'s.

comment Rename hundreds of files
Do this command: mv filename1.txt filename.txt. This will basically move the file and rename it at the same time.

Yeah it is CentOS 6.6 (26.32-504.12.2.el6.x86_64). As I have the GUI, I cancelled the AutoRun and mounted the cdrom, as your steps showed, through the Terminal. Then ran it the same way you did ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run.

I have just tried doing it as you said, in your updated question, and it is working for me. So not sure what I have that you don't have. Maybe try restarting the system, and see if that fixes the copy/paste issue? Sorry I can't be of any more assistance :)

comment Use “find” from a specific relative directory
So you are asking that you want to search one folder but ignore the other folders? For instance, you want to search /opt/ but you don't want to search in /etc/?

I would always recompile to be on the safe side.
