I have ubuntu installed in my work laptop and windows installed in my virtualbox. I installed windows in virtual machine so that I can download origin games on it. I want to copy those origin game files form the windows virtual machine to my ubuntu main host so that I can copy it from ubuntu to my gaming pc later. How should I do it?

    Create a shared folder that both your guest and host can use.

    The build-in help of VirtualBox is quite good at that point.

Installing guest additions for VBox should sort you out.

After install, just make a shared folder in the VBox settings for your VM and it will show as a normal drive in file explorer.


Install sshfs and winfsp on Windows guest and mount host $HOME directory as a drive and copy files there.
