Experiencing the same problem with same version of VirtualBox.

Can you please attach the required logs as shown in the article here [1] so that we can investigate the issue further?

Does the Windows host have the DnD source (that is, the content you want to drag over to the guest) on a network share / drive? If so, the drive might be created with different user credentials than which VirtualBox is using. This in turn then would lead to the mentioned VERR_NET_PATH_NOT_FOUND error.

Can you please try with the latest test build for VirtualBox 6.1? You can get the latest test builds on the Testbuilds page.

Please note that also the Guest Additions of this test build need to be installed on the guest, followed by a guest reboot.

Let me know if this fixes the issue for you. Thank you!
