Shared folders: Strange behaviour

Reported by: suiyuan Owned by:
Priority: trivial Component: shared folders
Version: VirtualBox 1.5.6 Keywords: shared folders
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: other



I'm using a Fedora 7 as Host and a WinXP as Guest-system.

I've defined 3 different shared folders (WORK, PRIVATE, GENERAL), which I want to access in XP as network drives.

It should look like this:


All the virtual drives have now the same name (WORK), and I cannot change it inside Windows. Inside the command-prompt from windows they all have the same drive serial number.

I still can access the different folders correctly, but they all have the same name... So that's a little bit confusing.

If the problem still exists, please update to 1.6.4 and attach a VBox.log file of your VM session. 1.6.4 adds some additional logging which wasn't available before.
