Shared folder not accessible - sometimes

Reported by: EDoe Owned by:

Version: VirtualBox 4.1.16 Keywords: shared folder access
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Windows


In my (Win XP SP3) guest the host's (Win XP SP3) shared folder - accessed as volume D:\ - is sometimes "not accessible", but sometimes it is.

After the error message the folder tree in Windows Explorer (guest) often disappears, then pressing F5 might bring it up again, maybe after a couple of trials. Copying files to the (not-read-only) volume also works only sometimes.

Variations of access rights, set from either host or guest, do not affect this phenomenon.

The same problem occurs under these conditions:

  • Virtualbox current version 4.1.18
  • Windows 7 host instead of Win XP SP3
