I am using Genymotion version 2.3.1 in my Ubuntu machine. I am able to copy files from the host machine to Genymotion by a simple drag and drop method. But I am unable to copy Genymotion data to the host machine. I want to move data from Genymotion to the host machine. How I can transfer data?

  • As a workaround, you can use any file uploading service.

    @Smile4ever But it is costly and time consuming also... May 23 '15 at 7:52

Try this:

  • Go to your VirtualBox VM settings Shared folder tab (open VirtualBox > select the Android/Genymotion virtual machine > Settings > Shared folders)
  • Add a shared folder with the folder you want to share, and check the auto mount and permanent options
  • Start your VM as usual from the Genymotion software
  • Your shared folder is available in the /mnt/shared directory (multiple shared folders are supported)

This feature is not supported with Android 10 (API 29) virtual devices. But You can connect your Android phone to Genymotion and copy your data.

  • I think this answer is less relevant to OP's Genymotion version or overall problem, as it was asked almost 6 years ago, way before Android 10 was introduced..
