I have a folder in my Windows 10 host that needs to be shared with the Ubuntu 17.04 Virtualbox Guest.
Here's what I did:
Added the windows folder to the VM's Shared Folders Folder Lst (Name:
scraper, Auto-mount: Yes, Access: Full, Machine Folder)
Added user to
sudo usermod -a -G vboxsf scraper
sudo mount -t vboxsf -o uid=1000,gid=1000 scraper /mnt/the-scraper
and encountered this
/sbin/mount.vboxsf: mounting failed with the error: No such file or directory
Why is this error happening? How can we solve this?
