Ticket #3340 (new defect)
Shared folder file creation/deletion not permitted on sub-folders, WinXP SP3 Guest
|Reported by:||ariel||Owned by:|
Shared folder issues with Virtualbox 2.1.2 running in a ubuntu 8.10 box, with a WinXP SP3 guest.
The guest can access the shared folder: it shows up in "My Network Neighbourhood" and it shows as \VBOXSVR\MYFOLDER
Using the File Explorer in the guest, I can select files, and do Copy/Paste to obtain a copy of the file. I can delete files with no issue.
However, when attempting to do the same in a sub-folder (e.g.: in \VBOXSVR\MYFOLDER\MISC), then I get an error message:
"Cannot copy file: cannot read from the source file or disk"
or if I attempt to delete a file I get:
"Cannot delete file: cannot read from the source file or disk"
I can edit files in sub-folders with no problems. I just can not do file operations on them.
In Linux, the folder I am sharing is in an EXT3 partition. I double checked Permissions and they look all right and they look the same for the root of the folder and its sub-folders:
Note: if I map the shared folder to a Drive (say X:), the same problem occurs (but the error messages are slighly different).
I believe this started happening with VBox 2.0
