Description of "shared folders" is incorrect

I have set a shared folder (named "DataExchange") in Windows. When I move mouse on to the icon on status bar. It shows that the folder locates at "\VirtualBox\DataExchange". So I try to add a mapping for this folder. However, system says this location does not exist. After couple minutes seaching, I have found out the correct location is called "\VBOXSVR\DataExchange".

Could you guys please change the description on status bar? It is a misleading. Many thanks in advance.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to wontfix

The GUI shows the host path. The UNC path is documented in the manual. Don't really see the problem here.
