I am running Ubuntu 14.04 as the guest operating system in a VirtualBox virtual machine. The host runs Windows 8 (24GB). I want to access a folder of the host inside the guest.
Since the source is huge, I am trying to use it directly from Windows and mount it on the guest system.
I searched online, and installed
virtualboximage.iso and shared my folder in windows 8 in the settings of VirtualBox (basic steps).
I checked for my shared folder under
/mnt folder but it is empty.
How can I access the folder from Windows 8 to the guest system?
