Feature request: GUI option for shared folder mapping

Reported by: typingcat Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 1.3.8
Keywords: shared folder Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: other


First of all, I think there should be an option for automatic shared folder addition to the guest OS at the GUI menu. Currently I have to manually add it from the console frontend.

I mapped the shared folder to 'Z' drive. After having saved the guest OS state, I resumed it after somewhile and tried to access the shared folder. Then an error message popped up.

An error occurred while reconecting Z to \vboxsvr\vmshare VirtualBox Shared Folders : The local device name is already in use. This connection has not been restored.

This always happes when I save and resume the state of Guest OS. Is this a bug or did I misconfigure it?

The Host OS is Windows Vista and the guest OS is Windows 2003 Server.
