I have some existing directory in virtualbox running ubuntu, and would like to make this folder a shared folder in virtualbox, so that the host OS, will see it. The end goal is to use git in the host OS running windows, which I think will be easier for me than doing it from ubuntu. Is it possible to define in virtualbox a shared folder to point to an existing directory ?

Thank you, Ran


Of course it is. Check this and this.

  • Hi, I mean that the existing folder is in guest OS (ubuntu running inside virtual box), not in the host OS (windows). I did not find the answer in the links. Thanks – ransh Mar 3 '15 at 18:44
