Mapping Shared Folders

Reported by: HCIT MK Owned by:

A new Shared Folder is given the next drive letter!?! I have many batch (*.BAT) files that are used in a development environment. I would like to develop older x86 applications in VirtualBox as well as a native version of Windows XP on a separate hard drive, which is where the Shared Folder is stored. Currently, VirtualBox and the separate drive have different drive letters for the same drive and thus prevent the use of the same batch files. A mapping (or setup assignment) feature would resolve this problem. I haven't found another posting on this issue.

VirtualBox can do *nothing* about that. That's purely how Windows assigns each drive. You may be able to get around in from within Windows, but not from within VirtualBox.
