I am running CentOS 7 on the VirtualBox. CentOS image is CentOS-7-x86_64-DVD-2009.iso downloaded from here [http://mirror.kakao.com/centos/7.9.2009/isos/x86_64/] and the Host OS is Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC

In the VirtualBox setting > SharedFolders > Machine Folders, I created a shared folder with folder path 'C:\Users\myname\Documents\temp1', folder name 'temp1', read-only option off, and auto-mount option on, mount point option blank and make permanent option on. I expected that the files in the 'folder path' in the host appear somewhere in the guest OS, somewhere like /media, /home, /usr, /usr/local. But I can't find anything.

Where are the shared folder and the files?


Good Evening,

you have to make and name a sharefolder in Linux, lets name it share. Then you mount it via

sudo mount -t vboxsf -o rw,uid=1000,gid=1000 share ~/host


Just had the same problem with vmware :D
