  7. [SOLVED] Re: Virtualbox and shared folders - permissions problem

    Also, make sure the Virtualbox Guest Additions are installed in your Ubuntu guest, and the Virtualbox Extension Pack is installed in your VB installation in Win7.

    Your user in the Ubuntu guest OS must be in the vboxsf group.

    From a terminal, type:

    sudo adduser xxxxxxx vboxsf

    where xxxxxx is your user account name. Log out and log back in to Ubuntu.
