Linux – Mount a shared folder with virtualbox

To mount a shared folder (previously configured in the VM’s parameters), launch the following command:

sudo mount -t vboxsf -o uid=$UID,gid=$(id -g) NameOfSharedFolderInVMConfig PathToMount

as sudo user

For example, I have configured this shared folder : Capture

So in my VM, I launch this command to mount the shared folder under the “Labs” folder of the home folder

 

sudo mount -t vboxsf -o uid=$UID,gid=$(id -g) Labs ~/Labs/
