Ticket #3197 (closed defect: invalid)
Cannot share directory and files for update
|Reported by:||hgladney||Owned by:|
As must be common, I want to update files in Linux directories from a Windows session in VirtualBox. I suspect that I do not fully understand how to do this. I.e., if it is a bug, it would be that the user guide is insufficiently informative.
Operating system is Linux Ubuntu 8.04. Guest operating system is described in the second attached screen snapshot file.
Have Samba sharing working (I believe). First screen snapshot file shows that the directory of interest (/home/gladney/DL/DigPres/Crit/ is shared with all permissions turned on, that VirtualBox sees it as a shared folder and that an included file is shared read-only. However, an attempt to save a copy of this file under another name fails.
Please advise what I'm doing wrong or have overlooked. If you need more information, please specify what that should be.
