Apologies if this has been asked but I couldn't find anything after a search. I am looking to learn why after I install an update for my Ubuntu 12.04 in Virtualbox I have to re-install Guest Additions (Ctrl+D)? I do have my settings in VirtualBox set as Auto-Mount: Yes and Access: Full but for some reason even after a shutdown I still have to do sudo mount /media/foo for the folder to attach if that helps.
