I am trying to transfer files from my Windows host to kali guest in kali linux but the

sudo mount -t vboxsf file_name_host file_guest 

does not work because it says

unknown file system vboxsf

Also the it does not show the USB in the machine after I added the USB from the device menu in the virtual machine.

So can someone help me know how I can transfer files from Windows host to kali Linux guest


An easy way to accomplish this would be to use PSCP, part of the Putty toolset on your windows machine.

From a Windows command prompt:

pscp.exe \path\to\file user@kaliIPaddress:/path/to/destination
