Hi,

You can add the permission for the user. For example the user is testuser then run the following command in your virtualbox Ubuntu os:

sudo adduser testuser vboxsf

Here you should replace testuser with your user name.

Thanks

Hi,

I tested this and it worked for me. I replaced testusser with my username:

sudo adduser <myuser> vboxsf

Thanks for posting this on your site.
