Unable to COPY from read-only shared folder to Vista guest -> Fixed in SVN/3.0.0

Reported by: redxii Owned by:
Priority: major Component: shared folders
Version: VirtualBox 2.2.4 Keywords: vista read only
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: other

Description

When creating a read-only shared folder and attempting to copy a file from the host (XP Pro) to the guest (specific to Vista), I get the following error:

The disk is write-protected.

Remove the write-protection or use another disk.

To preempt the obvious: there's no problem with file system permissions, there is sufficient read and/or write access to/from the guest. The error doesn't occur when giving the share Full permissions. This is specific to copying into a Vista guest, I have no issues with XP Pro guests.

This also occurred in 2.1.4, but I just felt like reporting it just now.

I used the network drive method of mounting the share: net use X: \vboxsvr\sharename

Also forgot to mention the admin or non-admin account in the Vista guest made no difference.

Replying to agent_p2:

I had same problem using VirtualBox 2.1.4 and problem disappeared after upgrade to VirtualBox 2.2.2.

Sorry, I was too quick, problem still exists.
