Ticket #3748 (closed defect: fixed)
Unable to COPY from read-only shared folder to Vista guest -> Fixed in SVN/3.0.0

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.
- Version changed from VirtualBox 2.2.0 to VirtualBox 2.2.4
- Summary changed from Unable to COPY from read-only shared folder to Vista guest to Unable to COPY from read-only shared folder to Vista guest -> Fixed in SVN
